Join Tiki and Star as they navigate their way through the turbulent circumstances after the break.

“Missing You”

(Poem By Tiki Da Poet & StarChasr Shai Carter)

StarChasr
Are you missing me
Missing me like the stars miss the night
and every time I close my eyes my thoughts take flight
Reminiscing that slight embrace when
I cradled your face to wipe the waters from a cruel world
forbidding the ground the pleasure to taste …
Your tears …
Even though I knew you had seen me as no better
because it was a man that hurt you.
Lover’s crime to the letter.
I still stand giving my all …
Kissing the ground while breaking your fall,
now I’m bruised licking my wounds
as you remember how to stand tall …
it hurts and I wonder …

Tiki
I wonder … are u missing me? …
As much as I’m missing u …
Missing ur comforting embrace …
Just look me in my face …
U will see how much I’m missing u …
The way u would kiss all my stress away …
The way u would rub all my worries from my aching body …
U would wipe away the tears
letting me know it’s okay
The sweet & tender man u r …
U never let me fall …
were always there to catch me …
The tenderness on ur face …
The love in ur brown eyes …
I could never deny …
But I must admit I took it out on u …
What he did …
Not even realizing the hurt I inflicted
on u … ur heart …
I never meant it …
I know ur a better man than he …
It hurts me to know how much …
I have hurt u …
Now I often wonder Do u miss me? …

StarChasr
There’s never been a brighter star in my sky
In any moment that passed by
Where another could replace the
The image of you in my mind
I reminisce that hurtful night
Your words gave birth to tearful eyes
Voice biting at my chest
Killing me from the inside
I remember my cries
Asking my Father why
Does she plague me the wrath of her past
When all I do is miss her all the time
He never responded
He just gave me a sign
While looking in the frame of your picture from long ago
Looking for you and found a reflection of mine
Arguments strengthen relationships
And this my love was achieved
For I could never stand by and just watch you go
I miss you too much to ever let you leave
Time heals all
And I pray I’m not deceived
hoping you realize with your real eyes
that in words there are no real lies
I offer my heart … if you will give
yours to me …

Tiki
There’s not 1 day I don’t miss u …
Or a nite when I don’t dream of u …
No man will ever replace  u…
I still sit & reminisce how I
Hurt u … the man I love …
I still see the tears u had in ur eyes
Every time I close my eyes
I know I hurt u …
The hateful things I said to u …
I never should’ve said …
I wish I could take away …
Make u see that I wanna be
Be with u & no1 else will do …
Cause no matter what I do …
I can’t stop missing u
My heart is weak
My soul is empty
My spirit is down
When ur not with me
I miss u that much
So much that I feel ur love
Surround me … even in ur absence
I never wanted to leave
I really wanted u to ask me to stay
I hate arguing, fussing & fighting
I’d rather lay in ur loving arms
Spend all my life with u
To make our beautiful relationship
Even more beautiful
To strengthen us
Trust me … time will help
I will trust u & love u
Not doubt or run
I will protect ur heart
As well as put mine in ur hands
Please be cautious
My heart is fragile
let me feel ur arms around me
As ur lips kiss mine
Show me that u have been missing me
Cause I have been missing u …

Similar to the previously featured collaboration, this piece is composed of four parts. StarChasr heads up the effort providing an enlightening male perspective on things while taking on the first and third sections. Tiki provides a complimentary female response as she takes care of the second and fourth sections. This poem takes on a distraught emotional tone. It carries the reader through the complete journey of the separation. There is the beginning where the issues of the past first start to form the wedge. The middle where there is remembrance, acknowledgment of the ordeal, and regret. Then finally the ending where the two lovers seemingly come back together to try and work things out. The rich details and ornamented word play really bring something extraordinary to the writing. Especially, all of the sentimental elements that are placed throughout. They truly speak to the reader’s heart and evoke feelings of empathy as almost everyone has dealt with this issue in the course of dealing with romantic matters. The third and fourth stanzas are the highlight of the work. All in all, this was another immaculate collaboration.

**My Two Cents: I think I like this joint offering just as much as the last one. Tiki and StarChasr worked efficiently together as a team. They both came with graceful wording and everything flowed together charmingly. I could easily feel and visualize the heartache within the piece. Both poets really stepped up to the plate. I am very happy that they were willing to share it with the site. Hope readers enjoy it too. -MinM
