Empty (Followed by the Instagram poem Bridges)

Greeting you in the morning

That kiss that stayed on my lips all day

The smell of body lingering in my thoughts

My day couldn’t pass quick enough

Only to lay next to you again

Long nights now alone

In the bed we shared

I wait like a corpse

Alone and broken

Knowing you’ll never return

A text arrives

7:30 AM

I smile knowing it’s the time you call

but it isn’t you

It will never be you again

I sit waiting on a bed we shared

Watching the clock

Listening to the silence that was once your quick beating heart

Wishing things could have been different

But you burnt that bridge

The bridge that led to my heart

and my life is a little more empty now…
