Like Love Without a Kiss

Like Love Without a Kiss

A Poem by Jessica

Like a bird that has lost his song
I am helpless without you,
I may function fine
But a clock can still run
With only one hand,
Though it may miss the other,
And I can still breathe
Even without you by my side
Though not with the same passion
Your kisses filled me with
But with my own worn out love;
God, I am so empty.

Author's Note

Jessica
This was partly inspired by a quote that Andrew Wolfe made about books: 'A book without words is like love without a kiss; it's empty' (hence the title actually).

I will say "Like Love Without a Kiss" is like a "life without a soul" or "beats without heart"
Beautiful poem keep writing :)

Intelligent use of the clock with only one hand.. a very smooth flow of words yet your poem has a true and gentle heart. That quote is well worth more thought, by the way.. you've certainly opened a new train of.. in my mind.

very bittersweet, thematically very similar to Pablo Neruda, in the discussing of the void. well done! :)

This is beautifully sad. The longing for your love, the empty passion that burns without its flame.
Great write.

Though not with the same passion

God, I am so empty.
