Silence

Can You Miss Someone You've Never Met?

It's quiet here these days,

Silence implies it's peaceful,

it's not.

*

The air is thick with memories,

Nights are lonely endeavors,

I'm lost.

*

Running in circles,

Circling the drain,

Going under.

*

This is so hard,

Nothing makes sense,

Except her.

*

I see the path forward,

More certain every day,

Stuck here.

*

And yet I grow,

Look at me today,

Better tomorrow.

*

How can I find you,

When I am so lost,

Seeking love.

*

How will I know?

We've never met,

Missing you.

*

Have we crossed paths?

Another life perhaps,

Déjà vu.

*

So I'll lay down,

Alone in this bed,

Always cold.

*

Silence returns,

Encompassing all,

Can't breathe.

    The loneliness that comes through this is saddening. It's like the emptiness of life is choking. That's a powerful idea.

    Oh my goodness, you chose the perfect format and style for this piece. I feel choked up, just as your words seem to be eked out through a constriction. Such emotionality here. And just, the concept of missing someone you've never met...I relate to that so much. You capture its pain so well, Bradley. This is a great one.

    These verses hit me like a ton of bricks. The heartbreak is etched into every line. I love your prose and how well it flows. ❤️
