The Forgotten - Poem by Terry Biscamp

His eyes now hold a hollow stare
Where once the light shined bright
As he sits in the dark he knows
There will be no sleep again tonight

Her eyes seem old and tired
From all the weeping she has done
Feeling drained and spent
Emotional ease, tonight, there will be none

How do things turn so bad
And why do words stay so long
To dig and scorch into your heart
And make you forget you once were strong

His arms are achingly empty
She so longs to be held
Their attempt to make things right
Once again has failed

They seem to not appreciate
Everything that once was theirs
They've built up their many walls
And wonder if they're now beyond repair

Living together, but still so alone
How sad they allowed it all to go
The tenderness and love
Certainly no longer show

A bond that once was shatterproof
Now strewn in pieces, never to heal
Two souls that are now lost
With two hearts that will never feel.
