A World Without Her.

No lips to kiss.
No dream to hold.
No sleeping beauty.
Nor child told.

No basking glory.
No woman who calls.
No allusion to fall for.
Nor romance which stalls.

No changing of rooms.
No crazy nights.
No broken cups.
Nor raucous fights.

No cars collide.
No bed to care.
No long haired carpets.
Nor breakfast shared.

No adventures together.
No feeling like shit.
No put downs or tears
Nor reason for it.

No one to say ‘No.’
No being in the way.
No reason to eat out.
Nor reason to stay.

Life in the fast lane.
The minutes are your own.
Freedom in the slow.
Thoughts kept alone.

Half the world sits silent
The other complains & loves.
But who is the happiest?
& Will I ever know?

~ Contentment is being alone. But excitement?

  1. you have never failed to amuse me with your thoughts….no matter how negative {negative because it is about not having someone anymore, i suppose} it may seem; still you have the gift of putting a little smile on the face of whoever reads it…

    Right from the start I knew I would love this poem and you know what? I FUCKING LOVE IT! I’m sorry, couldn’t contain myself there.. 😀
    Anyways: Great poetry, but the question at the end seems much greater. I’ve got no answer yet.
