Your not coming back

Your not coming back

A Poem by Johanna

A poem about the worst pain there is, the pain of loosing someone close to you.




The room is cold, and so empty

I hurry to close the window

I touch the old, photo you gave me

Of you when you were little


I cross the floor, and sit down

On the chair you always used to sit on

The wooden door still carries your nightgown

It doesn´t know that your gone


I light a candle to feel warmer

It doesn´t help much...

The stuff I told you to move

Still lies in the corner

I´m longing for your touch


Your voice, your laugh

Can´t believe your never coming back!

It must be a bad dream, a nightmare

Maybe when I wake up you´ll be here

Beside me, sleeping on your pillow

Cause you promised

You promised you´d never go


I stand up to make some coffee

Take two cups out of the cabinet

Then I remember, your not drinking with me

Almost loose my breath


Is this over yet?

How could you forget, what you promised

I thought it was true, now how can I forget you?

You knew, you knew

I needed someone to come home to

Not just anyone, I need you

You are never coming home...

How could you leave me here alone?


I lay down in my bed, lay done on your side

try to close my eyes

Pictured your face, looking down from the sky

then I cried

I don´t want time! I just want your hand in mine

your hand, so soft

I look at my ring, the ring I´m never taking off

I´m never gonna take it off.

ur welcome hun
This write enforces me to cry, cry and cry on where i sit. I can feel what you want to day or what you;ve already said, this write seemed my fav. one because you really made me emotional and you jotted this write from your painful or HBK heart.
nicely penned, idea to write i can't ask from where get came because such kinda piece only comes from reality and reality and i love suck kinda writes much which comes from reality and shows some mirror of life.
well penned.
