Dearly Departed

I am empty when I see your face,

Not the same hopeful spark that used to haunt me.

Only when I think of the way you talked,

Do I start to want for the way it used to be.

Slow reasoning will slip in when I need it most,

Reminding me to let what was stay that way.

You used to be tomorrow,

But we were too caught up in today.

It’s time that I move on,

Get a grip and forget about it.

Words you promised still rattling around in my head,

So painful and deadly I think my brain will split.

I can’t feel it anymore,

Because this is what you said you wanted.

Moving on shouldn’t be so hard,

But your voice is echoing and I still haven’t responded.
