After Love
Arthur Henry Isaacson

I lay in silence on our bed
As in fear I dare not tread
On subjects intimate, unsaid
Nor try to rouse a love long dead

A prison cell composed of flesh
Nearby back I can’t caress
A night too long in deep distress
Does not, my soul with sleep impress

A scream within my head does roar
Throw wide the gates I do implore
Bring back the world I knew before
You killed the love, was once my core

I cannot bear the closeness now
That once was valued, sought somehow
Became a nightmare, rejected vow
And leaves, but tears, upon my brow

Whether free or kept in chains
From you there’s naught but cold and pains
From bonds that warmed, all that remains
Is emptiness,… my cup is drained
