Your Voice


I used to hear your voice,
Clearly in my mind,
Now I hear my own,
Tricking me, it’s mine.

I used to hear your song,
Sing inside my heart,
Love songs and ballads,
But now that we’re apart.

I can’t hear a thing,
Just my loneliness,
A silent cold darkness,
Taunting me, oh yes.

Telling me I’m crazy,
To have loved so much,
Given myself completely,
Given in to your touch.

There is no bitterness,
My own voice now tricks me,
Just emptiness remains,
Where your voice used to be.

    Sad and nostalgic... hurtfull yet so amazing!
    I am glad you've let all those feelings out in a great poem, other than keeping them locked inside...

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
