Without You

It’s been almost a week
without you.
It feels so quiet here
without you.

I strain to hear
your voice in the silence.
But all I hear
is your absence.

I get lonely
and more lonely
and i can only think
if you were here only.

What is this feeling
that I feel?
When will this healing
begin to heal?

You aren’t mine
and i’m not yours
But i near the line
and open doors

To places I don’t belong
but long to linger
And just once
feel your fingers

As they stroke my face
and run through my hair
As if I were there
or you were here.

Mixed Emotions

He’s the one that got my humor.

The one that i could laugh with.

He was my soul mate

for sixteen long years.

Years of pain and poison.

 

It’s good he’s gone.

It’s good i left him.

So why am i so sad?

Why am i hurting?

 

Is it the loneliness?

The extra responsibility?

Missing arms holding me

and lips on my neck?

 

Depression is heavy.

It wears you down.

The little pills are no substitute

for the happiness i felt.

I’ll Get By

I write short, happy poems
So I don’t need to delve
Deep into my soul
Filled with emotions
Dark and scary.
Even I am overwhelmed
By these thoughts
By this sadness
By this me
That I’ve become.
Don’t feel responsible
For my feelings
Or my hurt.
They aren’t yours to own.
I’ll get by
Even without
A man of skin.

If You Were Here Tonight #30in30 #poetry #make30

I’ve decided to talk to you

Even though you are not here.

To tell you what I’m feeling

That I’m hurting, shaking, scared.

 

I’m writing down these words

As if you’re here tonight

Like you were

.                About this time

For the past few nights.

 

If I pretend I’m not alone

And act like I’m not lonely

Perhaps I won’t fail me

And my God again.

 

If you were here

With me tonight

You’d tell me bits of wisdom

And build me up again.

 

Then before I even know it

Before we are aware

I’ve made you smile

You’ve made me smile

 

 

But you aren’t here tonight.

And these are only my words.

And I still have doubts

And I still mess up.

             Again.

You’re Nothing: A #30in30 Poem

mirror shadow

All rights reserved by Donna Marchlewski

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She is a nothing, a nobody.

She is alone, all lonely.

People see through her. She’s emptiness.

Her quiet demeanor unnoticed.

Even the mirror reflects her,

a shadow of herself.

She’s small, mute, and colorless.

An indescribable being at best.

So she pulls the covers up

then completely over her head.

She hides there in the darkness

hearing the sound of her breath.

Come morning she’ll hit the snooze

before rising from the warmth.

She’ll get dressed and start anew.

trying to be someone.
