Out of reach

Written by: Leonard Taormina

You went away and joy went with you
Sound became a screaming in my head
And my eyes drowning in sorrow;
Saw only the emptiness of life without happiness;
     Brroken love often spreads;
     And written emotions often seem;
     Previously penned;
     But empty hearts, they live in infamy.

You’re back;
But I find nothing of then.
I can’t reach you; but I stay close;
And unguarded I can only cry.
           Maybe it’s me;
           Perhaps I am undeserving;
           Completeness beyond my reach;
           Maybe I owe.
