Things in Lieu of You

Fictional stories
Replaced emptied inboxes;
Songs and melodies
Instead of silly phone calls.

Blank ceiling and walls
In lieu of that smile;
A hand to my heart
Instead of my head to your chest.

Dreamless slumber
In place of sleepless bliss;
Cups of tea
Instead of drowning in the thoughts of you.

Deep sigh from the chest
In place of songs from the heart;
Silent nights in bed
Replaced warm embraces and tangled arms and legs.

Songs under my breath,
Words falling on deaf ears;
Verses to which I give birth,
Air passing by blind eyes.
