Disconnected


Anyone ever felt the disconnect of being separated from someone you love? You know you will see each other again, but … there’s that disconnect … the empty space?  Yeah, you know the one.  Well here’s a new poem based on that feeling. 

Disconnected

I feel empty

disconnected

seriously affected by your absence…

lack of presence  screams across abysmal crevice

 

separated

 

 the space between your heart and mine

laced with sorrow

and desire

 

Invisible wires still transmit signals

your voice sends Morse code tingles

down spinal telegraph lines

telling heart

 

itsherSTOPohGodSTOPImissherSTOPcanIholdheronemoretimeSTOP

 

to race

tracing from ear to heart and back again

the speed of sound

of thought

of light

of flight between fantasy and reality

from electronic telepathy

to really holding you in my arms

And then

To have you leave

Again

 

Almost too much to bear

 

I swear

I can’t do this much longer

I need you here

with me

permanently

So I won’t ever again be

Disconnected.

  1. Love this! I know this feeling all too well (and I can’t stand it). The pure emotion of loving someone so much you feel their absence in your body. Nice rhythm and rhyme–this one would be good aloud. 🙂

  5. Man… feels like my life right now. Great use of space and capturing the essence of really feeling disconnected but still longing for the connection.
