Bobbie Troy  Returns

When the Poetry Has Gone

By Bobbie Troy

I feel empty sometimes

as if purpose and meaning

cannot be found

and I am afraid of today and tomorrow

I feel empty sometimes

even though my life has been full

and I’ve had more good times than bad

I feel empty sometimes

because passion and romance

now elude me

and even memories are fading

I feel empty sometimes

because the poetry has gone

and I don’t know how

to get it back
