The absence of your touch
stilled this beating heart
hardening in the silence
where your voice used to echo
among the dreams that reside
behind closed eyes at night.

Cobwebs of forgetfulness
blended with the shadows
dulling once bright eyes
now vacant in solitude
filling up with tears
that cascade in torrents.

No more room for warmth
the fire has already burned down
the coldness of abandonment
left this heart a derelict
adrift in the endless sea
of forgotten memories.

  1. I love your writing…and your writing style.
    reminds me a bit of someone i used to know…reminds me of me as well…

  2. Thanks!! And i suppose your right..couldnt hurt..
    but until then, here’s a lil something..and your honest opinion would be nice…

    Inches, months, years
    I measure your absense
    with the spaces between my finget tips
    and yours
    the gaps between my ribs
    The seasons without light

    • ….the length between the stars and the moon
      on my ceiling
      the pieces of humanity scattered about my floor
      the many ways i’ve lost my self
      and how often i find a sliver
      the sluggish beat of my heart as i wither into my tea cup
      the fragments of life still left in my limbs.
      the creases in the flesh beside the eyeballs, against the chimes of a grandfathet clock in my dreams… if i dream . by this count it has been exactly five lifetimes, give or take one.
