image borrowed from rob kistner


after the clutter of leaving
after the hurry of goodbye

after sweet anticipation faded away

after no more embraces
after the laughter was memory

after the sadness collected day upon day

after the spaces fell empty
after the familiar grew distant

after our time together had become the past

after the taste of regret
after the loneliness mounted

after my time remaining dwindled down t’ward the last

I did not think it would be this quiet
I did not think it would seem so far
no I did not know it could be so quiet
nor did I know how this silence would scar
