About the Poem

Sometimes when people leave us or they seem to have disappeared from sight, a haunting and repetitive sound can be "heard" and can drive a person with a broken heart to the point of insanity.

I am a male 15 year old. I have a lot to prove to people,so I must be strong. though this poem that u wrote brought tears to my eyes after 2 verses. and I cried during th rest.

The Sound

Evening falls onto this lonely city,
As the night- time shadows creep.
You and I are far apart,
This emptiness keeps me from my sleep.

Where has the time taken you?
Yesterday seems so wasted.
Calling out words of pain,
To think it could have lasted.

Did I ruin what we had?
Words seems so distorted.
Try to clean them with some care,
The memories are now all sorted.

The sound, so bittersweet
haunting with its repetitive glue
Holding on, never ceasing
The sound is of you

Silence falls on this tiny city,
A soulful calmness fills the air.
Mental paintings are all that's left,
I could not meet you there.

Pessimistic voices call,
But it was both of us who spoke.
The pain traveled both ways,
My spirit that had once soared is broke.

The sound, so bittersweet
haunting with its repetitive glue
Holding on, never ceasing
The sound is of you

Chills fall on this windy city,
All alone, it is dark.
My eyes ache from non-stop tears,
You had left your mark.

Absence has killed the path,
Where do I go from here?
Do I listen to the sound,
Or die with your fear?
