left over

waking up early after not having slept
life seems (void) it was forever ago
i hear your voice (silence) echoing through my room
your words forcing an entry (openness) my ears
cauterizing (inaneness) my mind
blazing (agony) my heart
I don’t love you anymore
callous words not whispered not shouted
spoken (wordless) emotionlessly as the evening news
how can there be no love anymore
as if love was a (lovelorn) we’d rashly consume
(nothingness) we have sucked up its very last drop
forever ago (vacuity) feels like home
