Are you out there?~by Peter Forster



Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 23rd of August.

Are you out there?
Can it be so
When for so long I have felt alone.
Even when the world
Is filled with noise and spectacle,
The space where you said
You would be
Stands empty.
Where are you now?
I am in silence
With nothing but a whisper
In the hollow of the sound
I used to hear.
Nothing is real
Even the truth is coloured black.
Whitewash covers
All that life used to be
When the promise was made,
Leaving it blank,
An empty page,
An unwritten book.
Even with words
There would be nothing to see
Without you.
None of my dreams make sense,
Dog-eared and bitten right down
To the bone.
I wish time would stop running in parallel,
When it converges,
Paths will cross,
And ours could choose to run together.
This is all too surreal,
I can feel you at my shoulder
But until you are here
The sun,
Although it shows,
Continues to grow colder,
The young just get older
And where once
I thought to be found,
I am all but lost,
Hidden from view,
By a host of truths,
That lie between
The world of words,
And the reading of their meaning.
