I write what I feel…

Where are You?

Where are You?

A stranger watches me

Through your empty eyes.

A foreigner kisses me

With your cold lips.

An alien holds me

In your dead arms.

Where have you gone?

Where is the man,

My mate of many years,

My other half,

Who said he loved me?

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Dreadful, so sad to be in that position.

    Well writted adee


  2. Glad you clarified it was in the past.
    Poor you…uncomfortable when your leg has a mind of it’s own!


  3. that is the irony one have to face each day as if loving somebody- a mistake. so hard to be in the situation and you never know what it is that pulls you apart from the man you have once loved. insightful poem here.


  4. Excellent poem.Hope you are well on the mend?


  5. oh, this i know…not the man, but….smiles.


  6. So sad, Adeeyoyo – beautifully expressed. bb


  7. A powerful poem – the cold facts, the questions whose answers elude capture. I too have found it useful to put these things in writing, even long after they’re in the past…


  8. Very emotive piece of writing, Denise. Very well written.

    Hope you’re well!


  9. Beautiful, thoughtful writing. So much emotion in these few words.


  10. I think we all have someone in our past that this applies to. Well written Adee – poignant, thought-provoking and so real


  11. The physical presence of an emotional absence, so well painted that it made me think. Had I been there? I had to answer ‘Yes, on both sides’. Sad indeed!
