Absence Of You (poem)

I woke from a dream the absence of you

An endless review of nothing at all

No hope of morning to cast away doubt

No comforting light to show me a way


Timeless confusion toyed with my fog

Faceless familiars turned a blind eye

Soundless endeavor crying of heart

Endless and never ways to get out


I dared not recall what dropped me here

Shouting in silence alone in a mob

Absent my reason purpose was lost

Far beyond fear was this nothing at all


Then in from some window I heard a voice ring

Calling me back from a mistake I made

Forgiving the sound of How have you been

I just had a dream the absence of you

I hope the dream was just a dream and not a nocturnal expression of loss.

I'd call that a Bad Dream!

But, the poem is a work from the heart.
