An Empty Heart

He came again as just before
a simple knock upon the door

no smiles or kisses did he place
a tortured look upon his face

i felt his absence standing there
the emptied heart i could not bear

so many words lay quiet and still
a hollow chest he would not fill

and what of love so fond and true
has time the bandit changed your view

a stranger stood before me then
last tragic scene when lovers end

are all forevers gone for good
an empty place where you once stood...

    Favorite line among many: "i felt his absence standing there" Yes indeed my friend! He was standing there, yet he was absent...Sad and melancholy feel throughout yet full of grace and elegance - More please....

    Hi Ms. Ruebel. "are all forever's gone for good an empty place where you once stood." is great and enviable language by you. Nice creation. Many of your poems are sad but rich in meaning and wealth of form. You have some very sweet works. Thank you for showing & sharing with us your poets heart. Keep up the good work. Regards, Earl

    Sharon ,emotional and sad . Knowing they will never come through the door again. This poem describes the feeling so well. I had almost the same feelings at his grave when planting bulbs . Lost it big time. Nov 17th coming up again. Hugs .Anne

    Dear Anne, The only ease of pain I get now is knowing I will see him again...In the mean time, my clocks seem to tick endlessly ... He taught me so many things during his life~just never taught me how to say goodbye.....Love, Shar...Your in my prayers
