Since You've Been Gone

by Gem   Jan 9, 2007

Since you've been gone the house has been playing up
The door is tempermental and the windows are all a blur
The curtains watch for you coming back
The clock misses you, it wants to turn back time
The TV pretends it doesn't care but I sometimes catch it watching old re-runs...
All the plants have lost the will to live...
I think your couch is dead
The computer tries to comfort me, but you know what it's like, always something new to download.
The kitchen hates me by the way...
The toaster holds me to blame
And the cooker just spits at me
The kettle doesn't even boil anymore, it doesn't see the point
The fridge is getting fat... comfort eating
And the freezer feels the cold more these days.
The dishwasher didn't even notice you'd left.
It's hard since you've been gone...
I've not told the toilet yet, it thinks you're still on holiday
The bath just wants to run and wallow in it's misery
The mirror can't even bare to look at me..
I don't know why you didn't take it with you, you loved it so...
Your wardrobe feels empty since you've been gone
And the drawers aren't as open with me anymore
The lamps seem to have lost their shine
And at night, i hear the pillows crying as the bed dreams of your return... ©
