I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Missing That Feeling" by Ben Tran
Even though she sees him everyday,
She sometimes feels
like she has lost her best friend.
She misses the endless hours of texting back-n-forth
the way they used too,
she feels an empty space within her heart
as she sits alone,
listening to the quiet of the night
with her phone no longer playing that familiar tune
notifying her of his incoming message.
She misses the feeling,
an instant sense of elation
springing into her body,
a genuine authentic smile from ear to ear plastered on her face,
the way her heart would melt at the mere reading of his words.
Creating long-lasting memories as they build their life together,
sharing common interests,
discovering new ones along the way
makes her tremendously happy with enormous joy in her heart,
yet she still yearns for those endless conversations
connecting them together as one.

Thank you, Lorna.
The first moments do leave a lasting memory, but the memory does not become dull.
Sometimes life gives us new memories to build upon and the old manner of doing things get pushed away to the sidebar.
In the end of our days all these moments will be fleeting memories, so one should take time to enjoy each one.

Those first moments of a relationship leave a lasting memory which can dull over the years. Your poem captures the yearning for those moments perfectly.

Thank you, John.
I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to comment.
Slightly different is the way I am, always thinking outside the box.

This poem is touching and a joy to read, Brenda. A slightly different scenario than what we normally expect from a Love poem, but very valid.
