Empty Nest

When they scream
In your head
Distant nightmares
Dancing with the shadows
In cerebral crevices
The eyes glaze over
In reminiscent darkness
Pleasures that were joy once
Now howling of loneliness
Sometimes a smile
Now a frown on chapped lips

Empty Nest #1 – A poem in 13 words

Lounging in the winter glow
Unravelling ragged sweaters
Darned with memories of yore!

Empty Nest #2

When they scream
In your head
Distant nightmares
Dancing with the shadows
In cerebral crevices
The eyes glaze over
In reminiscent darkness
Pleasures that were joy once
Now howling of loneliness
Sometimes a smile
Now a frown on chapped lips
