    Empty Chair 12.20.09

    Empty Chair 12.20.09


    Vase surrounded with colourless petal

    Fallen from long-wilted bloom

    Left to rest where they settle

    No longer brightening darkened room.


    Dust specks dance on slithered light

    Curtains hide world outside

    Life goes on but out of sight

    Because within me something’s died.


    Room is void of your breath

    A glance across but you’re not there

    Alone to live with your death

    Eyes resting upon your empty chair.

    the death of love now one gets used to be it a hundred years from now great poem

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
