Four years gone now


Slipped through my hands


Four years without you


I drowned trying to reach dry land


I want to tell you how much I loved you


But I donít know how to start


How can I explain that there is no room


In a broken, empty heart


Loneliness and desolation


Weigh in at nothing on the scale


They leave space for nothing else


Yet somehow they keep my heart in jail


Four years, how they flew by


And still I occupy this cave


Talking to your ghost at night


Telling you there is one more left to save


Four years now lost to the wind


Slipped right through my hands


Four unimaginable years without you


I drowned trying to reach dry land


I want to hear myself say these words


That there was never anyone but you


I want to hear from your lips once again


That you feel the same way too


Four years or forty, it all feels the same


I am lost and alone without you


And I cannot find a way to start


There will never be a way to explain


How in the place where you used to reside


There is now nothing left, no, nothing remains


But the shell of my empty heart

good flow of emotion to this poem ... an empty heart is indeed a painful one ...
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 9/19/2005
Cade,

Powerfully expressed, shattering write--the pain is as evident now as then--that's why we should never forget. Thank you for remembering

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
