Behind Closed Lids

You are not worth my tears

It'll be just a waste of time

This is what I told myself

After our love has gone


But I was mistaken

For every night I can't help but cry

A silent grief embraces my heart

Tightly in its hand


At night I am cold in my bed

Coiled like a snail my body is

I miss your warm touch

In my pillow your head is indented


Left in my room is your scent

A smell that is originally you

The memories came crashing through

And it is trashing me down slowly


Even in my sleep I see you

Your arms around my shivering body

Your voice calming me down

Relaxing my quivering nerves


I don't want to open my eyes

Coz when it is, I am seeing you

But how can I close my eyes

When behind closed lids I think of you?

You have penned this with very deep emotions and heartfelt words. Life can feel so empty when a loved one goes. Nicely done. Joe
