The truth in a poem lies in the empty spaces between the words salvation lies where sad blue notes sting and cling and the ever constant pain of your absence has not yet settled in my soul My love lies in the fathomless depth of your sea-green eyes that led me to sorrowful merciless minor chords but happy choruses you’re gone but your melody embedded in my heart remains and won't let go I rejoiced yesterday when you called and said you would return soon but I detected in your hesitant answers how empty your words were if it weren’t for the relief your voice gave me I would not feel secure and celebrate in joyous expectation But in lonely anticipation I will sit and wait, without hope
