Pain That Runs Deep: - Poem by Sherry Painter

I smell his sent in the air,
I can hear his voice loud and clear in my ears,
Yet I don't see him,
Don't feel him in my arms.

My arms that once held him close to me,
Are now bare,
SO, so bear.

So bear,
The emptiness is excruciating,
The pain runs deep,
So, so deep.

Goes deep in my bones,
Into my soul,
The emptiness,
It burns away any other emotion I feel:
Love,
Happiness,
Joy,
It burns it away, leavening behind it:
Sadness,
Loneliness...
