Missing (Free verse) by Jill Stockinger
I look up in the night but all the polluting lights shining in this city, those pale imitations of the stars, block the stars from view just as my grief blocks feeling joy in my memories. Missing stars. Missing love. Missing you.

Up the ladder: Late Song
Down the ladder: Mad Hatter

For all the comments you have left here in the past few days, most of them finding some good, refusing to inflict a harsh remark, I wish you finding stars in dark skies, finding love that holds, and find the "you" you are looking for.
