Nothing left to say

by wordsmithwannabe

Phantom pains remain
where you no longer lie,
my tingling fingers splayed
over a warm depression.

I long for whispers in the night,
to tremble and ache as you rattle
the chains that still bind me.

There is nothing left for me
to say, nothing left to do
but pull the blanket over my head
and curl up next to your absent presence.

Nothing sadder than empty spaces. Nothing louder than the silence of broken dreams. This is so sad and almost haunting Chris. I hope this is just your wonderful imagination at work?

    thank you Sandy. this is an old scrap i dusted off and tried to make new. just felt like it needed to be dealt with and done so i resurrected it and threw it in the forums for help Very Happy no worries, this ghost is long gone...

These words are marked by apathetic discourse

between two deep lovers.

or two deep people in general.

Curling up to one who is not there with you

is like releasing the power of the chains that bind you.

Releasing them into a dark cadence

a power residing with fear and sickness.

I hope this is just your poetry

a model of today's society and average every day voyage of depressed persons

and not a peg of yourself

    well, like i said to Miss Sandy up above, this is an old piece that i found the other day in my junk box. just felt like it needed to be put to rest so i finished it and posted it. it is from an earlier period in my life. i'm not bound by those chains any longer Very Happy

I love poems about unrquited love, or broken love and because I am going through the loss of the greatest love of my life I broke down and cried when I read this. It has an honesty rarely seen and you crafted it so very well. Bravo, dear poet.

Ah damn. I didn't really want to give a good rating 'cos it pushed a big bubble of emptiness inside my belly.
Rings true though and it's well written - no matter how sad it is.
Not nice.., but still a nice piece.

Damn Sad

Wonderfully detailed, with respect to an in-depth love affair gone South.
You've captured the subject perfectly. A great read.

Keep writing.

Best,

Tamara

You have managed to convey pain in elegant language, without melodrama. Good stuff.

    thanks H. i don't particularly like melodrama in poetry, it's something i've tried to work on eliminating, or at least lessening, in my poetry lately. i'm grateful for the comment, as always.
