Poem: Empty Without You

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


Silence creaks of dismal emptiness
with a sense of loneliness sinking in my bones,
a hollow feeling in my chest
with you not here,
this comfortable family room feels enormously bare.

Adjusting to circumstances beyond my control,
compassionate understanding in my thoughts,
a solitude lingering in the walls,
leaves me feeling lost in another universe.

"Without You" by Mariah Carey
