Edward Hopper – Sun in an empty room

master of my thoughts,
release me–

dry my eyes
i can’t bear to cry–

memories cut deep
my wounded mind–

there’s nothing
in my lonesome heart–

nothing

the sound of us
echoing in the empty room–

– – –
A big thanks to Annie.

    Ah, when someone leaves us it is like a part of us has left, too. Feels so empty. 😦

      Indeed. And every little bit that is gone to never return is irreplaceable! 😦

  2. Haunting and beautiful at the same time. A lot of emotion in so few words.

      Thanks! I try to keep it short!

  3. In this one, I really wanted your lack of punctuation to become that… you know, just nothing at all: no diacritical marks at all.

    I rarely ever suggest anything in poetry, cuz I kinda suck! LOL! …but consider…

    there’s nothing
    in my lonesome heart

    nothing

    the sound of us
    echoing in the empty room

    — you know how much I ♥ you!

      • I’m so glad you liked it!

    You paint the strain so well. It feels like throwing every ounce of one’s strength into trying to shatter walls of our own creation. It’s exhausting and all consuming.

      I think you just described my entire existence! Best comment ever, gonna keep it to future consultations, haha. Thanks, Nelle!

      Thank you so much, Carolyn!
      You’re sweet!

    I love the way you end the poem and the imagery of the empty room and connection to the echo!
