Your vacant stare
The painful silence
Echoes through this empty void
Love so beautiful
You so vibrant
All of it now destroyed

You look at me
With unseeing eyes
How can you miss my pain
Not one tear
From eyes unblinking
I cry and I cry in vain

I took for granted
You would always be
Now I find myself alone
So many things
I should have said
If only I could have known

I profess too late
My need for you
No joy on your slackened face
I'm left with naught
But my misery
In this cold dark silent place

One more time
I kiss your lips
Unmoving unfeeling you lie
I take your hand
And lose my heart
As I wish you one final goodbye...

I take your hand and lose my heart - such a beautiful but sad poem. One day you will find someone to look after the heart you give them. Thanks for sharing. ((HUGS))

I always enjoy reading your poems, this one is no exception. A well thought out and executed poem, thanks for the read.

 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

You have written so well about such a difficult event.  One cannot help but feel the loss that you feel.
Good writing!

The emotion really builds in this as you read on...by the time I read "I take your hand and lose my heart" I was totally captivated.  Very nice write about the sad side of romance.   James

If a wanderer can be said to have a home mine is here.
Though my words have been absent for some time my heart has been with you all, my family.
Thank you all for your kind words

As always, your emotion is spilling out onto my desk, and I don't even mind!  LOL  (wiping it up a bit)  Now...where the heck have you been?  You know we desperately could use some of your er....cheer in Adult.  (ahem!)  You know, that's your home too!     You know I'm here if you need to talk.  Drop me a line if you wish.  Mailbox always open.

I have no words to express what your poem made me feel and how magnificent I think it is, I'm afraid I can't do it justice by saying anything except....thank you.
