Emptiness

To say that I am happy now
Would be far from true
This void was not always here
It was once filled by you
It was such a shock to me
When that dark day came
We were strangers to one another
No longer the same

Not a day goes by
That you are not on my mind
I was truly happy back then
I can’t leave those memories behind
My nights were not this lonely
I always had you to hold
Now I reach out into nothingness
When I start to feel cold
You are no longer here
To make me feel warm
Tell me how I make you feel
And fall alseep in my arms

No more late night texts
Giving a reason to fight sleep
Who would have known
That these feelings were so deep?
When my phone rings
I wish it was you on the other line
Checking as you always did
To make sure I was fine
I search each day
For a way to get through this
The well has run dry
And now the water is missed
My lips still cry out
For just one more kiss

You made my life a movie
And I enjoyed every scene
But we never made the production
This film will never be seen
Everything happens for a reason
That’s what they say
Why wasn’t there a reason
That would cause you to stay?
One day I will move on
But I have a lot of work to do still
You set the bar so high
Left big shoes to be filled

I try to forget about you
But my heart refuses
Love is blind
It doesn’t know who it chooses
I was not ready for this
I can’t stand the rain
I would give the world
To have you back again

Last Poem

If this were the last poem I’d ever write
I’d want to do it right
You need to know that I love you
You need to know tonight

If this were my last piece
I’d want you to know that you brought me peace
You’re the best thing that ever happened to me
I may never love anyone the way that I love you
And that is the truth and nothing but the truth

If this were the last time my pen touched paper
I would tell you that we can’t wait for later
We are destined for greater
I want you to be with me right now

My last poem would certainly let you know
That I never wanted you to leave my side
That being without you has been so hard on me
And it has left me empty inside

I want you to move on
If being alone will make you unhappy
But a small part of me wants you to wait
I know that if you had been able to stay here with me
Just how different my life would be

You are my everything
I’m so afraid of losing you
I’m scared that time will betray me
And I’ll never get to be with you again
I want to spend forever with you
I want to stare into your eyes and smile
I want to know that you are mine

If this were the last time I expressed with words
Just what my heart wanted to be heard
You would see the truth that lives within me
You would understand why my heart beats
In the words that flow in my last poem
