Alone Without You

Day 13 of National Poetry Month

Alone Without You
By Candace Shultz

There are days that I'm alone,
I look for you and wonder 
where you are.

So far away, like worlds apart,
even though the internet
keeps us together. 

When you're gone for too long
I start to worry. Are you okay?
I wait to hear from you.

And when you do message me back,
I sigh with relief as my heart
beats again.

I count down the days until your return,
wishing that time would speed up
so I can be in your arms again.

At night I cannot sleep because
the bed is empty and cold
without you.

I sit at home and miss you so.
Where did you go?
I'm alone.
