The silence is deafening.

The darkness captures my body.

I lay there & I can’t escape my thoughts.

Your smell is on my sheets–

Your side of the bed is cold–

where’d you go?

You left some time ago but I didn’t notice

You were here but you were gone.

Was I filling a void for you

Were you filling a void for me?

There’s an emptiness…

in my home

in my mind

my body.

You took too much with you when you left.

& I’m no longer here

Let the darkness take me.

I can’t be here anymore
