A collection of sad poems for those who have suffered the loss of a special love


The ticking of the bedside clock is the only sound she hears
As she lays inside her own grieving heart

Staking her claim in this dark self-imposed confinement,
She utters a silent cry and awaits the reply
To her unanswered questions

The silent inner scream clawing to reach the surface of her consciousness,
Her precious soul decaying with every tick of the clock

She recognizes nothing but the familiar noise of loneliness that fills her head
And her mind becomes numb as if she were on the edge of sleep

Anguish permeating the air, choking her with such intensity
She fears she hasn’t an ounce left to fight this battle alone

She reaches for his shirt that remains draped across his pillow
And draws it close to her body as if she can still feel him there

Bringing it close to her face she takes a deep breath
And fills herself with him one last time

She closes her eyes as the walls of her shattered heart begin closing down
The never-ending path of exile in this dark and uninhabited place engulfs her

Drowning in her tears like a never ending rain
The uneven silence accompanying her through this dismal journey
Her soul dying in this godforsaken place

Nothing but muted grey colors fill the world in which she exists
Endless haunting images of his face that never cease
This wretched emptiness has now become her closest friend
