Email Poem | Today's Poetry


Hey YOU!...  YES YOU!  listen up for a minute. I sit here in this room
day in and day out. Mostly starring in space.  but that's fine, truly.
I have been disconnected from my body, mind and soul since she was killed.  
Yeah your right, I lost it,,,I lost everything...I don't give a d@mn!!!
I know there is no longer any hope for me in this world.  So I am going
to stay right here for as long as they will let me, or I totally vanish
into nothing...No one comes around anymore.  so why bother?  Right? Right!
I just wanted to let someone know I have left a message under my mattress...
remember that...someone...Lord, It's Been Years...


Its been years since I've heard your sweet voice
Its been years since the laughter echoed through my mind
Its been years upon years since that day we ran ourselves raggedy
All those years, months and days that were taken from you and I
Now I only can use my heart and mind to recall the laughter
Never would I have ever thought I loose precious memories
Its been years since I've heard your sweet voice

Your gone yet always you're here in my heart and soul
Many times I had asked God, If he would turn back the hands of time
If that were only possible, for its been a long time waiting
I guess better left undone, it must have been for a good reason
Yet she was cheated, I was cheated and it is damned unfair!
We are told to live life to its fullest. Live everyday as if it's your last
Its been years since I've heard your sweet voice

Its been along time since we talked about our dreams
Its been forever sitting by the phone waiting for your call
Its been hard living day to day without a settlement in my heart
All those endearing young charms of yours that will never shine
They will never shine as bright as when you smiled your smiled
Its been lonely sitting here looking at your pictures
Its been along time since I have heard your sweet voice...
