An Empty SeatThe war is over, but not for my emotions.
I sit at my dinner table
Mourning the emptiness at my father's seat
Where he would eat, laugh, and talk
I mourn the blank space where his plate used to sit
Where he used to set his silverware
I mourn the hugs he used to give me before bed
And the "good mornings" he'd say to me every time I woke
I mourn smelling the stench he came home with after work
Proving he got his day's job done right
I mourn the games we used to play before bed
And how he would always end up winning.
I sit at the dinner table, in tears
Hoping that one day, I'll see him there
Sitting in his seat, engulfing his meatloaf
My mother tries to calm me
Sometimes she even sits in his seat to fill the empty space
But it's not the same; it's simply not the same.
I mourn the times we would all sit as a family and watch movies all night
Eating caramel corn and drinking hot cocoa in our pajamas
I mourn the times we went fishing at the lake
Always getting congratulated on catching somet
Old PoemWhat is fake and what is reality?
All of my feelings end up with despair.
Now nothing is what I thought it would be.
In the end, all of this is just not fair.
I think of you, but all I feel is pain.
I'm on a road and I cannot return.
All of these thoughts are driving me insane.
The pain I feel is causing my feelings to burn.
Is there even a truth behind the lies?
We care and love but was it even real?
I can see our love in your gleaming eyes.
The love we share is how I'll always feel.
I'll always love you more than anything.
You will forever be my everything.
