When You Are Not Around

When you are not around
I feel like a queen
Who has been forced to
Abdicate her throne

The day drags
The night becomes longer
My thoughts encircle your thoughts
I talk with you in my mind

I laugh empty laughs
I find reasons to cry
The food seems bland
The company of others bore

When you are not around
I am not me
Like I am left alone
In the wilderness
I burn and yearn
I simply miss ‘us’ – you and me
When you are not around

this poem is well written, but i don't agree with the content - being that dependent on another person is a weakness that can easily be avoided
