Big Empty Space

Big Empty Space

A Poem by Neville
"

when they're gone.. they're gone

"

Big Empty Space

 

Such a space

She once filled

Now gone though

Tis like she

Never was

 

While in the

Distant distance

Love lies wounded

And appears

To be so very bruised

 

Henceforth tho

As I calculate

This unexpected

Extra space

Now available to me

 

I sit recalling days

Bemused as much

By her sheer absence

Yet despite it I still do

Feel so very much abused

To not have loved and lost is never to have loved at all. You have hit the love nail on the heart here Neville. I suppose our experience of love lost is personal but I would say that the love lost can linger long. I think your reference to feeling abused will chime with many. I liked this a lot! I relate more to poetry like this that speaks to me!
Cheers.

Nev,
been reading the history of English poets in the 1890's. This sounds very much like what I've seen. This, if I may say, has a nice ring to it.

I am delighted sir.. many thanks indeed.. Neville
Poignant words. For someone who occupied such a large space in the author's world, tells me this love was important to him. I also get a message of don't cry over spilt milk there are plenty of other fish in the sea. However that said, it is clear from these lines that there is a heavy fallout on the emotions. You always say so much in your writing Neville, you really cut to the quick.

Imagination can take us to some wonderful places Neville. It can also drop us in the crap too. :)
Some you can live with, some you can't.
But sometimes the choice isn't as simple as it seems.
We all reflect for different reasons, only we know why.

Perfect quintains, each framing a sentiment and all of them together complete a picture of eventuality. You are proficient at painting a frame of mind at any given circumstance. Heart tugging, yet captivating writing, N.

A purposeful, poignant and reflective contemplation my friend...

Those empty spaces that almost have a presence of their own and seem to resonate in silence, posing the difficult question, just why and where did it all go wrong??

yes, there is no claustrophobia here...would rather be in a small space of life with a love...than having too much freedom to roam without her.
