Silence

silence

I look around I look for you

I see many but no one like you

Smiling and tossing in the blue

Just like you always did just like you

 

There you are sitting on the chair

Fiddling with the spoon and the hair

I stretch my hand to touch you

And you move away just like always

 

You were not perfect nor was I

But together we made a perfect life

You completed me exactly right

But now I am broken, alone and trite

 

There is silence all around me

Miles of emptiness and despair

The smell, the touch, the sight

I try hard each day to put up a brave fight
