A life lived alone

A chapter in the book My Book of Poems

Vacuous Life

by Mustangpatty1029

My empty house surrounds me,
Only voices from the television fill my day,
The people in my life have all gone away.

The husband left two years ago,
Taking half of everything material,
And the little bit of human touch
Extinguished along with the light of Love.

Kids grew up and started their own lives,
Finding themselves husbands and wives.
A text, an email or short call,
Is what I hear from all.

Will anyone mourn my passing?
Will I be missed when I'm gone?
Loneliness surrounds me from dawn until dawn.
