Deep Deep and Deeper

The pain goes deep.

I'm a lonely miserable creep.

Suddenly I no longer belong here.

I desperately want to disappear.

This is not my home.

Where will I roam?

Nothing will ever be the same.

I don't hear you call my name.

No one sees or hears me.

I want to be free.

The pain inside me I keep.

Night comes, I no longer sleep.

I rise early to face each day.

The emptiness I feel never goes away.

I am hanging on by a frail thin string.

I no longer sing.

İFebruary 15, 2018 Janet Griffin

*I wrote this poem a few years after my soul mate passed away.
