v o i d ,the man i once loved.

far from me, void, bitter man

that I once loved.

Pale and Pallid poetry

that still clings to my ear

through the ghastly grief

that gutted him in his glory,

from the grand gentle man that he once was,

shrunk, shrivelled, distorted into the grotesque–

fragments like the wilting petals of a fragrant flower,

like a million needlepoint tears

that carved out a gorge on his hollow jawline,

which grew and blossomed into a painful vortex.

It deepened and darkened

and into its depths, I watched him disappear.



i watched him fade,

cave within himself.

The brokenness which bound a boundless man,

he collapsed undereath the bone-crushing weight of life,

wherein fatigue and fear had been rooted at such a depth

that the agony of life gone awry

weakened the porous skeleton

that with but one brief breath,

he folded and fumbled

falling further into melancholy murk,

where I saw him below the surface sink.

From my open arms, he was stolen

wherein below all sorrow lurks,

I lost the man of my ballads laid bare,

bitter void, far from me.

-Eva M.M.

With this poem, there is a lot of emotion which i hope is felt by the reader. But there is also a lot of word importance in the words I choose, the images and the placement and playing with them all so I would love to hear how you as a reader interpreted it all.

Thank you as always for reading.
