Episodes of Gloom
I stare into the distance
thinking of what once was...
I reach out to you with my thoughts
but you were nowhere.
I listen to my beating heart
the heart that still beats for you...
I strain to hear your heartbeat
but I hear only silence.
I remember the warmth of your touch
the soft caress that once gave me repose...
I try to hold on to you
but you have long since gone.
Then there is a hollow emptiness
a bleak void of nothingness in my soul...
I shed my tears for you in despair
and I go on my way.
