Poem: Since You Went Away by Kenny Wilson

Since you went away
The silence fills my room
My head feels like a tomb
And I am lost inside.

Since you went away
I see a hollow grin
The emptiness within
The groom without a bride.

Since you went away
The air smells just like death
I struggle for my breath
There’s nothing here but grief

Since you went away
There are no truths to hear
I live alone in fear
I’m like a fallen leaf.

Since you went away
I can do nothing but cry
I no longer ask why
I just live from day to day.

Since you went away
Strangers haunt the street
I gaze down at my feet
There is no place to stay

Since you went away.
