wounded heart

missing her

her temper

her stare

her secrets

her eyes

everything about her

made everything else

bearable

and now

that seat beside him

is empty

no response

no laughter

no one to call home

in a place

where home is who you love

gone

he grieves for her

and only wishes

he could have said goodbye

but even then

she still would be gone

he will never have that moment

that one last word

that one last look

that says

you know how i feel

i love you

and i hate that you aren't here anymore.

trying to gather strength

and feeling the energy leave with her

he is sad

and almost inconsolable

a dream

the kind you cry about

because you wanted it to be real

and thought it was

and then realize

that sometimes good things stop

and there's nothing you can do

tears and hurting

he hugs himself

and hates that its not enough

feeling abandoned

feeling responsible

what does he do with these left over feelings

losing someone

rips a place in your heart

that takes forever to heal

nothing is worse

nothing anyone can say

devastating

this place just wont feel the same now.

Oh this is very sad, especially reading your response above, and to know it is real. But beautiful nevertheless.

Bleeding heart, so much pain, so deep, so breaking... Oh, God... I send my prayers to Spencer! He is lucky to have such a caring and sincere friend like you! It's a beautiful poem, very expressive!

This is raw, revealing and real. I like your response and reaction to the love of your life. Beautifully written. It shares the sentiments I felt when I wrote a song called'forever nights' here in the hubs- the chorus on it goes' hope you are fine in all that you do, hope you are loved and listened to, hope your head carries worries few, hope you are still the you that I knew!' - voted up and beautiful!

You have described such a loss so beautifully and with such profound empathy, it brings tears to my eyes. Spencer is indeed fortunate to have a friend, like you, who is there and who understands.

I'm so sorry, Pink, I misunderstood. Then the poignant beauty of these words is that much more revealing and still brings tears to these eyes. Voted up and much more.

You wrote a poem for the guy you left? If so, that is pretty damn cool. I loved the poem by the way, in my opinion it is one of your best, definitely in the top 5. Your poetry is always raw and true. You are unique. Up and beautiful (darkly) and awesome.

I know this pain all too well. My heart goes out to him as well. It hurts, but a wounded heart will heal in time. they always do.
