Separation - Poem by tesha berry

Nights are hard, silences ringing with words unsaid
A hollowness within, without-
Your scent on the pillow beside me, cold
My pillow wet
The darkness oppressive, memories depressive
Heat comes in waves, rivulets of fear, anger remorse and regret
He said, she said, now no more words to be said.
Everything undone.
Vows broken, rings a token gather dust
Photos mock.
Two hearts, when there was one
No light no love

We’re undone
