An Emptiness

another night spent in the chair
and opened eyes become aware of emptiness

a withered glance around the room
that's now become a catacomb of emptiness

with memories that linger here
like lambent flames that disappear in emptiness

a treasured jar, a perfume smelt
a presence lost, an absence felt, an emptiness

hung on a peg a tattered coat
of one once near but now remote in emptiness

and reminiscences rebound
off faded walls without a sound in emptiness

through the old French windows now forlorn and overblown
sad delapidated gardens brood and lie alone, all overgrown

remorseful tears which magnify
a windswept scene, a vacant sky, an emptiness

a memory, a broken heart, an emptiness
