Influential

The empty chair, in sharp silence

I can deal with and compensate for

.

Glancing stares out a near window

Oft forgetting that, I shouldn’t expect

To see your smiling image out there

.

My amnesic mistake, calling your name

As I enter a room- that is now barren

Can have a sobering affect to a heart

.

The painting easel and its blank canvass

Lacking those perfectly placed colors

Of life, you re-imagined so masterfully

By painstaking hands, I can re-imagine

.

Those are the times I write the utmost

Precious words of my heart, paperlessly

Because they’re spoken without thought

.

But our bed is the coldest place of all

Not because it lacks your warm body

But because your resounding heartbeats

Is what made all the difference… for me
