In a world where there's no absence of sound.
Perhaps only in death, the hush abounds.

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

It is a final Exam

The depth of absence
If fail
Just become 
A framed still picture 
On the wall .

No hugs warmth, and soft kisses awaits naught.
Walking about endless paths of nonsense.
Seeking therein a world wherefrom time waits not.

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

An Act Of Brevity

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

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

In your absence, their presence.

Paralysis results in the absence of
feeling anything even 

Fear not hurt.

The absence of heart
Gone with you
Like shattered glass tearing through the fabric

Beliefs are lost, amongst others, 
beliefs are empty
Nothing is real.

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

Life and Purpose

response was, "What is life without purpose?" To which a man, absence of faith, replied,

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 | |



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

Going the distance for Love

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

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

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

Short Absence poem by Joseph Silva| Details | |

come back

These cold chills you give 
They send all warmth away
They tend to lack all that is love
Because this chill you give 
You only give in your absence
They never leave, never ever
Never ever ends with your return

Short Absence poem by Andrew Crisci| Details | |


Who are the wonderful sisters I've loved? Mary and Joanna, Catherine and Stephanie.
They all exchange their love by giving more with delight and kindness.
Although distance makes us sad, absence is less felt by calling.
