Shadows

A Poem By Nikki // 9/11/2007

There are shadows
of you
in this empty room - places
your fingers have
touched and moments
you've breathed
that we can't take back
and I wouldn't
want to, anyway.
Everywhere I find
little pieces of
your life
left as souvenirs
of this brief
togetherness.
Your voice echoes in my
loneliness.
Please come back
and make this house
a home again.

beautiful and sad

Hi! This piece really spoke to me. So sad and beautiful at the same time, and it speaks to love lost on so many levels. Thank you

Good job

Nikki,
I really like this poem. Especially:

"Everywhere I find
little pieces of
your life
left as souvenirs
of this brief
togetherness."

Because that's really what it's like when someone isn't there.

"Your voice echoes in my
loneliness."

--that was my favorite line. :)
