Neoplasty

Neoplasty

popped into my head

on waking

I wondered

what it meant

and why it

just appeared

I thought

about it

first

thinking

Neo means new

Plasty

I had to think

It is like other

words with

plasty attached

I thought

change

operation

falsity

then

I wondered

again

Neoplasty

become new

change to become new

cut with surgical

incision to renew

or just be fake

now

I’m going to

look it up.

 

tissue grafting

to renew

to repair

damage.

 

funny

when

that happens.

Missing You

Missing you

In desert lands

Bereft of growth.

 

Barren waste

And emptiness.

This most.

 

Missing you.

A great divide

Between

 

Actions, words

Personified

To mean.

 

Missing you.

Starless sky

Beheld

 

 

Moon disappeared,

Unlit orb.

It fell.

 

Missing you

In dreamless days

But sleep

 

In dreams

Of love,

Fantasies may weep.

 

Missing you.

Serenity

Escapes.

 

Patient

Understanding

Gently waits.

 

Missing you,

Just missing

All you are

 

Empty sky

Depicts

Only one star

 

Falling into

Space,

It finds me here.

Missing you.

All love lost,

I fear.
