    Without You
    By DeathandGrim


    In an instant it started to rain
    I hung the phone up after our conversation
    I hadn't noticed the clouds above had began to cry
    Reflecting my pain

    I grabbed my case
    I dawned on my suit
    I grabbed my hat
    I forgot my face

    The walk to work was drab
    Steps on the sidewalk echoed
    People spoke with no words
    Time was forever the past

    Opened the door to the office
    Lights flickered and hummed
    The chairs were mostly lifeless
    As inviting as a coffin

    The walk home was cold as well
    Droplets pelted my skin
    Flowers wilted and wept
    Nothing to protect them from the swell

    That night my place was stagnant
    A bed for two
    A home no longer made
    The was silence louder than one could imagine

    And without you there is nothing within
    Only I exist now
    A muted reminder
    Of mistakes reciprocated again

    It was a lonely, and lovely poem, I hope you never lived it. Not too complicated and over adjectived, you deserved to win, congrats!
