Jigsaw Puzzle

This lovely poem is our first reader submission. Thank you, desinorse.

[Guest Post by desinorse]

this weekend
old memories
visited me
like so many
unwelcome
guests

days spent
waiting
for calls
for reconciliation
that would
never come

days spent
agonizing over
every word
that might
have turned
her away

days spent
entirely in bed
not wanting
to get up
and confront
reality

days spent
refusing
to believe
there could be
life after her
let alone love

days that
blurred
into weeks
and months
a year
of dazed misery

then you
came along
and eventually
won my heart
with patience
and quiet resolve

i feel now
like a
jigsaw puzzle
carefully
fondly
reassembled

almost together

but with
a piece
permanently
missing
