you're gone and i'm still here alive

~lyric, lou reed




words on a chilly morning

 

you're gone   you are definitely gone

your absence stings   then stings again

 

how can something so empty sting

here comes another sunrise   i greet every one

 

there it goes   i kiss it goodbye

not you   you're gone   i'm wrapping my arms

 

around nothing   no head on this chest

no use me   no nothing   you're gone

 

you are most definitely gone   and i'll tell you

words are cold comfort  

 

and i’ll tell you   words are cold comfort

 

~

 

snow falls on cedars   

you’re not here to see it

 

snow falls on cedars

and you’re not here to see it

 

~

 

how can something so empty sting

how can something so empty sting

I'm beneficially startled by the phrase "wrapping my arms/around nothing," but that's because I can so much relate to it. I wish I could tell stories as you do through poetry. An enjoyable read, as always. :)
