My heart cries
In bittersweet sorrow
Skin aching to feel
Your touch again

My eyes scream
But look so hollow
Lips needing to taste
Your scent again

What’s past is done
Nothing left to follow
Leaving whispers to fall
On deaf ears

Now I am gone
My heart, I will swallow
And hope I don’t choke
On my tears

    You're right, this is beautiful. The simplicity I think gives the words a stronger feeling – it's a very stark but emotional poem, if that makes sense. Good job on the rhyme scheme. 🙂


Have something to say? Jot it down. I dare you. ;)
