i put together the puzzle pieces
slowly at first
corner pieces and edges until everything starts to
fill in
and it makes me miss you
as the details of the picture are called into focus
until the picture is
just like i thought we once were

and the puzzle is finished
accomplishments complete and as the puzzle finishes itself
i am sad
because there is nowhere for it to go
except to break itself up
and pack itself away

i break apart the pieces i so tediously put together
and gather them into the worn box
i hide it away in the closet that doesnt have enough space
and no one really looks into anyway
everything there is prized and covered in dust

it makes me miss you
