Next To Me - Poem by John Doe

In my bed
Right next to me
I have an empty space
A cold place

I never move over
It’s a big hole
Cold and scary
Where is the warm body

In my heart
In my chest
I have an empty space
A cold space

I never fill it
A big hole of loneliness
Scary and alone
Where is the warmth

In my bed
I have a place
For someone
To fill with warmth and love

Sometimes I roll over
Into the cold emptiness
Then roll back to safety
My safe warm place

Sometimes I have someone
to fill my heart
But no I pull away
To my safe lonely place

In my heart
I have a hole
So big and empty
Can someone fill it

It’s cavernous
Is there anybody that can
Fill it with love
my cold and lonely place…..

So I dream of that day
A warm body in my bed
A warm soul in my heart
And me being happy again
