to one away

in your absence we wilt 

like desert flowers

And the yellowness of my heart

Of my beloveds absence

It is a final Exam
Evaluating the whole life

The depth of absence
If fail

On the wall .

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.

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

Dwindling Hope



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.

Roses Aspirate

Roses aspirate.

In your absence, their presence.

When breathless, inspire.

You said you would go the distance

I never anticipated it to end so abruptly

I have to move on and I am doing it prudently

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

of an opaque canvas


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

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

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....

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
