The Great MissingA Poem by i'mHiding
The night is quiet, the lights have all flickered low,
Hear the furnace kick in from the basement,
In the darkness of my home.
I am lying still,
petrified & lost in dull truth,
Dreaming with my eyes open,
Constantly thinking of you.
Drenched in a cold sweat,
Your last words on repeat,
I want to taste your kiss once more,
feel you loom over me,
The cars rift along the highway,
Their headlights shift through the blinds,
The light tightens my sight,
and i close my eyes momentarily,
squeezing them tight.
I remember your touch,
like silk over satin bonds,
now it feels like worn leather,
something of which i am not fond.
The coldness seeps in around me,
my heart is fully broken,
why i walked away from you,
is a reason that could never be spoken.
My apologies are worthless,
My tears are nothing more,
than a raindrop in the desert,
& the echo of my crumbling core.
All is nothing,
without the love of my life,
Love is unlike anything,
Especially this selfish knife,
Still caught in this cold-sweat nightmare,
Thinking through but i'll never know,
i'll Always and forever be wondering,
how i ever let you go.
