A quiet and empty home

My voice is now
So quiet
Without your ear
To listen with understanding

My arms now hang limp
Without purpose
At my side
Without your presence to welcome
My embrace

The house is now so
Silent
So empty
Of laughter

But so full
Of tears

My bed now feels so
Empty
Without your warm body
To grace these vacant sheets

I still wake each morning
With a smile
And reach
For a kiss

And each morning
Is like a slap
In the face
As I realise
Once more

I am alone

A quiet and empty home

Artist's Description

That awful time after a break up before it has fully sunk in that you are alone. Walking the house and it feeling so empty as you begin to realise what a big hole is left in your life.
