Kind of a mixed bag of every emotions who paints words like he's putting on armor.

I don't quite know how I feel about this piece. But I do want to elaborate on it. Please review.

Something's always missing

May 19, 2020


I've come to know myself as all these metaphors for incomplete,
I think that's how we all are as human,
We can be perfect without being complete. 
Something's always missing.

We can look around at others,
Eyes focused on beauty or flaws,
Depending on the viewer,
And there are a few we see as perfect,
And a few we see as incomplete.

Something's always missing.

We can look at happy couples struggling,
And struggling couples happy,
and feel envious,
because even though we want that,
We both are incomplete,

We're missing something.

But she walks in,
With the magical audacity and awkward swagger,
That can only be seen through clumsy teenage eyes,

And suddenly feel like we're not missing something. 
We're missing someone. 

Who am I to judge?

    This is beautiful, Dylan. I don't think I need to say anymore than that. Your pieces are always so beautiful and heartfelt.

    This is so sweet and thought provoking at the same time. I love this. In your bio thingy you said you just need 3 words; that's so true but only because you're a super talented writer. "We're missing someone." So good!
