The Trick Is...

What are you missing?
What isn’t there?
There’s a space for
something, but nothing’s there.

Who’s really whole?
Not missing that piece?
Full of themselves,
yet incomplete.

Is it in a song?
Is it in a poem?
A lover’s longing look
as you stare into each other.

In the mirror?
In the thoughts of others?
A reflection of the self
with jigsaw spaces.

What’ll fill that hole?
The gulf of absence?
A hand held close to the
heart and a kiss on the cheek.

Is that enough?
Is that all you need?
Some need more,
some need less.

But most of the time,
it’ll do the trick.
