Now that you're gone ..


Now that you’re gone,
Life is like a barren piece of land,
Unkempt and unattended for,
Overgrown with tall grass,
Which holds neither beauty nor meaning.

Now that you’re gone,
Happiness is like an empty feeling of elation,
Unwanted and uncared for,
Coupled with hollow laughter,
Which brings neither joy nor relief.

Now that you’re gone,
Sorrow is like a vast dark cloud,
Hovering and hanging over,
Coupled with racking sobs,
Which attend to neither grief nor do they relieve.

Now that you’re gone,
Hopes and dreams are like distant objects,
No longer remembered and wished for,
Covered with a heavy cloth,
Neither to be lifted nor moved again.

23 love for me ..:

Welcome back :)
Nice one again !
It is like :
*since you've been gone , everything is just wrong*

I liked this one particularly a lot :

*Now that you’re gone,
Hopes and dreams are like distant objects,
No longer remembered and wished for,
Covered with a heavy cloth,
Neither to be lifted nor moved again.*

Great job again :)

I can relate to this quite well. One of my very close friends passed away earlier this year, and I know the emptiness and sorrow and all that.

I wrote about it, and uploaded the story onto my blog, and someone commented saying, "Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it's letting go."

Lovely poem by the way. Beautifully written!
