.empty Without You - Poem by Peter Stavropoulos (Best Love Poems)

Emptiness means little without you
Words alone cannot equal two
You meant little to me before we met
The world alone closed every sunset
I had fought and lost again
What thought had found to gain
Its memory a frozen ocean
Without you Love's empty notion

(For S.D.)
