The Absence of Love

The Absence of Love

A Poem by Mary Jo. Clare

This poem is about the absence of love in one's life. Please allow yourself to relate to this poem if you've ever experienced this before. Enjoy!

The absence of love

Is an impatient void, waiting to be filled
Corrupting my well-being 

And making it ill

I hope for an intimacy 

That can calm my anxious presence 

A yearning welcoming embrace 

That ends this inhumane life sentence

A search for one that can open my eyes, to the good the world beholds 

Enabling me to see, Earth's glorious bounty unfold

I will write about Love's enemies

Till I discover it's shining light

Utter and complete darkness

Shall continue to plague my life

I felt this poem .. because I to am waiting for that special someone, and it does feel like a life sentence and it feels like it will never come my way and I see everybody else paired up and content with their lives.. very well written.
