While You'Re Gone - Poem by Lizee Beth

My days are empty,
Nights are so long.
Everything brings you to mind,
Like your favorite song.

Clock keeps on moving,
As time flashes by.
Nine months today,
I still wonder why.

Memories haunt me,
In the dark of night.
Silenced, I reach for you,
Knowing it isn't right.

Tears barely fall,
Rage an apparent friend.
Regret follows guilt,
A heart, numbness defends.

Denial shadows thoughts,
Subconscious too shocked to realize.
Soul has yet to acknowledge,
Your very sudden demise.

Sickened, I'm emotionless,
A struggle to go on.
Lost in pointless wonderment,
Oh, I barely belong.

I yearn to hold you,
Feel the touch of your hand.
Question how we got here,
Almost impossible to understand.

Torn from my darkened reality,
I fight to hold on.
It's difficult to breathe,
Breathe while you're gone.
