THE EMPTY SPACE BESIDE ME

THE EMPTY SPACE BESIDE ME

A Poem by DrD

I was lost in the ebony night

That sucked me in like quicksand

Leaving me without a raincheck or parachute

Without a key or a long last look.

And I need love more than ever now

I need your love

More than hope, sleep or a drink

I need to feast upon you once more

 

Only you could feed my hunger,

Because love has your face and body

Because your mouth is sweet

And God made no other eyes like yours.

And because you are gone

I walk alone in the depths of night

And reach to put my arm around

The empty space beside me

 

A velvet sky once was our parasol

When we were prone upon the fragrant grass

Not knowing that somewhere

A clock was timing us

The curse of cancer was invading her

Stealing precious moments

And condemning me to the dark wings of night

Where memories are better than life
