Silence

Silence can never truly be found
In a world where there's no absence of sound.
Perhaps only in death, the hush abounds.

to one away

in your absence we wilt 
like desert flowers 
in hollow canyons
blown by the wind to tilt 
and scatter our essence
amongst unholy sands

AM FUTILE WITHOUT YOU 
CAN'T COPE UP WITH LIFE

AND FILLED WITH DISMAY 

...AT YOUR ABSENCE.

YOUR ABSENSE

YOUR ABSENCE


Your absence,
A howling silence,
That
Amplifies the feeling of 
your loss
In my aching 
HEART!

Yellowness

Yellowness
The earth’s yellowness
             Is autumn’s blunder
And the yellowness of my heart
             Is the burden
Of my beloved’s absence

THE DEATH

The death is not an end
It is a final Exam
Evaluating the whole life
If win
Someone realizes 
The depth of absence
If fail
Just become 
A framed still picture 
On the wall .


Short Absence poem by Anthony O. Mitchell Jr.| Details |

I Without Love 2K12

I'd pitifully be of loves absence.
No hugs warmth, and soft kisses awaits naught.
Walking about endless paths of nonsense.
Seeking therein a world wherefrom time waits not.


Short Absence poem by Stephen Petluk gentle fury| Details |

the joy of nihilism

to be truly free
requires a studied absence of care

living to truly see
a world through open eyes aware

unencumbered by belief 
or sentimental grief

                      Lost at summer clock

Short Absence poem by Yara Rouhana| Details |

Dwindling Hope

Hope
Dwindles
Changing course
Of time and space
With glacial winds suffocating my whole
And absence of color within the snow
With the harshness
Of yearning
Dwindles
Hope.


Short Absence poem by William Ward| Details |

An Act Of Brevity

Penicillin quailing child; 
Peculiar eyes, charcoal ides, 
Distance drawn upon denial; 
Penicillin quailing child. 
… … … … … … … .
Sincerity is the absence of imagination. 


Short Absence poem by Wilma Neels| Details |

Reality Bites!!!


You said you would go the distance
I never anticipated it to end so abruptly
I could sense your absence
executed, so artfully 
I have to move on and I am doing it prudently

Roses Aspirate

Roses aspirate.
In your absence, their presence.
When breathless, inspire.

Numb

Fear causes
paralysis.

Paralysis results in the absence of
feeling anything even 
hurt.

Fear not hurt.

Short Absence poem by Karin Rodriguez| Details |

Shatter

The absence of heart
Gone with you
Like shattered glass tearing through the fabric
of an opaque canvas
unpaintable 
Beliefs are lost, amongst others, 
beliefs are empty
Nothing is real.


Short Absence poem by Ashley Daly| Details |

An Absence of Time

An absence of time
That is what I desire
A place where moments pass
But hours do not
Where memories are created
But eras are not
A place where I can be
And you can be
Ceaselessly connected


Short Absence poem by Jon Sledge| Details |

Life and Purpose

A man of faith was asked why, after such contradictions, he held tight to his belief. His
response was, "What is life without purpose?" To which a man, absence of faith, replied,
"Life yet still..."


Short Absence poem by Anita Lovelace| Details |

LOVE (a riddle)

The absence of it
Can make you blue.
The presence of it
Sure can, too.
It can break your heart,
Or lift you up.
It makes the world
Go round and round.
Only in a heart
Can it be found.

Short Absence poem by Amin Tres| Details |

Not at all

not at all 
we seek for sadness
but in the absence of happiness,
the is a facial without a smile.


not at all
we live for ever
but in the absence of breath forever
the is a future without a mile


Short Absence poem by Demetrios Trifiatis| Details |

YOUR COMING

YOUR COMING


As I saw you coming,
A smile dared to walk hastily across
My lips, 
Erasing thus, in its passage, the grim 
Imprints 
Caused by your aching absence.

Short Absence poem by Kenny Loy| Details |

Going the distance for Love

Gradually making my absence
And eventually losing presence
From the world i erase my 
existence
Waiting alone in patience
Giving you the time, space and 
distance
I'll hope, believe and pray in 
silence


Short Absence poem by Daniel Corcoran| Details |

no-one will read this so i don't no why i even bother when no-one will read this so i don't know....

words can from nowhere
nowhere feels like home
home is an absence
absence makes the heart grow cold
cold winds bite at emotions
emotions make us weak
weak people die in fear
fear consumes all that i create


Short Absence poem by Johnny Sumler| Details |

The Wise Bird

Those eyes
Of the old owl
Open when stars awake
Tarry in peace in taproot trees
Around the absence of colorless nights
A warble of the question whooo...
Solemn and wise thinking
Nocturnal thoughts
Watching


Short Absence poem by Dalton Smith| Details |

Ghost

It feels like years
The absence of tears
Once existent
Become so distant 
What I feel
Just can't be real
The emptiness
I could not express
Past well known
Far beyond alone
Entirely gone
Life withdrawn
