Without You ~ Nishka Ramkhelawan

I feel so bare without  you

like dark clouds which ominously cover the sky

but will not release rain to soothe the parched earth of your soul.

as Empty as lake without water

without you I am like a clock

that never moves,


your sun has vanished

while it is yet another day.

Perhaps you were ready to leave

But I was not ready to say goodbye

I am falling apart

And people will stand around watching it happen,

 but can't do much to make the pain go away.


How do I go on without you?

  1. Your words strike chords in my heart. This is very powerful writing.

  2. Yeah, we can all relate to these feelings. Everyone has been here at one time or another.

    "without you I am like a clock
    that never moves" ... I really like this.
