In This Place I Can’t Call Home

Monochromatic memories
now paint these silent walls
and, if I listen closely in the quiet,
I can hear them mourning
the death of Us.

Love
the color we painted
every wall with.
Now its vibrancy fades,
chipping from lack of care,
because I stayed here
and you chose there.
And it takes two
to keep this paint
from fading.

The couch,
the bed…
they ask
where is the laughter.
What happened to the nights
you and I
had those playful fights
that turned into
cuddles and kisses,
as the rain hit the window?

Love, your side of the bed
still remains cold,
while my side of the bed
can no longer feel my warmth.

In the dark silence,
I lay here with lost hope.
Heart sinking deeper and deeper.
Mind floating further and further
away.

I drift.

I call out your name…
But forget you’re not here.

It’s just me
in this place
I can’t call home.
