This Void

I knew when it happened...
it was a mistake...
a misstep out of time
I didn't know how long it would take
the answer came too soon

I was aware suddenly
of a break in our communication
unable to figure out
the change in our situation

Groping was I, in darkness
until you had your say
I did not understand it still
but I knew I could not stay

The pain others had caused you
it was my love that paid the bill
I gave you all I had to give
and remain empty still

Others have traveled through my life
but this void they cannot fill
