Empty - Poem by Maie Bauza

I have forgotten everything about you.
Over the time, I lived without your presence.
I see none but life through dark stained glass;
visions I learned to love.
I can no longer remember your touch
nor your smile, even your eyes.
I closed my own to see through
but could not envision, as though blinded.
It is but dim; but vague memories of you.
I have forgotten your voice; the sound, its flow.
It must be soft- maybe even mellifluous
I tried to remember- I heard nothing
but rustles; but wind
It must have been days. Weeks. Months. Years.
I felt as though robbed; stolen of all
that gave life meaning and sense
But everything has been the same. Nothing changed.
I laughed. I smiled, cried- I lived.
And yes, over the time, I lived.
With joy, a song chanted in mind
with inanity, an irreparable wound in heart.
