Where naught was left


Where naught was left I stayed and sat

And remembered enough for two

Without past there is no present

And the future splits in two

You were there, yet naught was left

And but for the sounds and sighs

I might have been alone in that room

With no cause to stop and cry

  1. Damn but that is good! Elizabeth, this is one of the sweetest, saddest, most heartbreaking poems I have read in years. “Without past there is no present/And the future splits in two” is simply and totally stunning! I am in awe of such beauty, honestly!
