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.

Poem Summary

"Empty Without You" is a poem about how the house feels empty.

A feeling we all experience at some point in our life, no matter the circumstances.

A loneliness creaks from within the walls.

One feels hollow and lost like he is in a different universe.


Empty Without You

Silence creaks through the walls, filling my heart with dismal emptiness
a sense of loneliness in my bones,
a hollow feeling in my chest,
this comfortable family room feels enourmously bare
without you here.

Adjusting to circumstances beyond my control,
compassionate understanding in each thought,
as solitude lingers,
leaving me lost in another dimension.


I only know that you are the breath in my lungs, the beat of my heart, the ache in my soul, and without you, I am empty.

— Rachel Gibson
