    The Spartan - Weekly Poetry Contest (154) Winner

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Jun 26, 2011.

    Empty places
    By The Spartan


    Places at the dinner table,
    Filled with empty plates.
    And empty seats in cinemas,
    Filled with absent dates.

    That constant aching hum -
    Of loves fought for but not won,
    Of hands sought for but not met,
    And words spoken (but not yet).

    Reservations never occupied,
    In the cafe of the heart.
    And all the lies we ever lied,
    That we thought were so damn smart.
