-There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. (Shakespeare, Hamlet)


Look under the cushions,
Beneath the cat,
Behind the curtains,
And in an old hat.

Where could you be?
You were here yesterday.
I thought I'd be fine
If I locked you away.

Now people are staring;
I'm falling apart.
Some people are glaring;
This wasn't smart.

I lost my heart
When I left it behind.
I know that I said
That it was still mine.

But love will come,
And love will go.
Without your heart,
You've got nothing to show.

I better catch it again,
Before I'm too late.
'Less my heart leaves me
To my own heartless fate.


The author's comments:
This poem has a twin...Insanity. If you read this one, read that one. This one was written second, but the idea came for it first, but since I try not to be the stereotypical love-sick poet, I was avoiding using love as a topic.

Haha, thanks, yeah I prefer poems that rhyme, and I'm not always and completely  lovesick, after all have you read Insanity? I wrote that one first.
