Your absence isn't the elephant in the room;
It’s the invisible parasites lounging in the floorboards
Just writhing for a taste of lonely flesh.

My repaired left half is gone;
Without you, I’m faulty once more:
The half-blind broken wind-up doll is here again.

There aren't words to describe the emptiness:

just return soon.
A friend of mine has to be gone for a while. I'm obviously not taking it well, but I'll adjust.

I miss him. Terribly.

EDIT 7/15/13: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE DLD!! :D He'll be ecstatic to learn that he helped me with this!

It's so vivid and dark. It drew an image of me sitting with my hands on my head on the floor of my newly empty apartment with the things she left. I love it!

Separation is but a temporary illusion,
Trying to entice you with confusion.
Its like a snow-white sorrow
Trying to manipulate you into thinking there's no tomorrow.

The future appears lightless-dim,
Thinking that there is no longer a "Him".
But remain restless nevermore
O do I now heed you to be at peace implore!

"He" never did truly depart
For you well know "He" remains in your heart!

Sorry Catherine, I had to go poetical on ya here :) Don't you worry, your friend shall never be gone, you can always message him, i'm sure he's love to hear from ya when he can.

I am truly sorry you are going through a hard time right now, but you do not need to go through it alone. Myself, and others will help you through it. Stay strong and remember you are not alone.

I know that, and I'm truly grateful. The shock of his departure just finally set in this morning, and rocked me pretty badly, even though I've known he was leaving for about a week. The finality and absoluteness just set in, that's all. :)

It is always hard to be apart from someone you really care about. I've experienced the pain of absence on numerous occassions...

You must know that no matter where they are, they are always going to be in your heart. Near or far, they are spiritually with you. No amount of distance can shake true friendships. :heart:

Be strong and pray for their safety, wherever they are. Know that you're not alone. :huggle:

You most definitely made a connection, sad but insightful. I hope you're reunited soon because it sucks being away from someone you care about. Oh, and that happens to be my favorite Sheldon Cooper moment :).

The half-blind broken wind-up doll is here again.
Such a sad & powerful line. The whole poem is written quite well, and the emotions in it are very very clear. It's great and you are good at writing poetry.
I'm sorry that your friend has to be gone for awhile. I wish you luck and all being without the friend for awhile...
I'm here if you need anyone to talk to. :heart:
