You Weren’t There

You Weren’t There

a Poem by Raquel Swann


The walls crashed from within my soul. I called

you weren’t there.

There were things I could have said. I cried

you weren’t there.

All of my hopes and dreams were destroyed. I yelled

you weren’t there.

You were the ones I counted on most. I begged

you weren’t there.

I bled from my wounds with no bandage near. I fell

you weren’t there.

One day you will think – where has she been? You’ll look

I’m no longer here.
