Dearly Departed Leaves Echoing Silences - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

I came looking for you
as I do several times a day

as minutes pass hours slow lost daily
in life is a hole a dark gaping vacancy

no one is watching me eating
no one is watching me sleeping

no one eating or watching me all asleep
in an empty silent house is heard not a peep

empty house stretching into silences
empty house leaves pointless mileages

    Hello
    You are alone, feel lonely. There are so many around, yet the one you wanted to be your every thing is far away. You are in dark silence. You long for that one you wish.
    Thanks this is Poem of longing, craving for the one you want to be your soul. (Report) Reply

    The silence heard after a loss is deafeningly sad...but alas the echoes of love come a creepin' just when we thought alll was sleeping. A beautiful, exceptionally emotional poem. I choose to save it to my list of favorites. PEACE (Report) Reply
