The absence of you

I need you
more than ever
more than words can tell

Was it not just a small time ago
we slept as lovers do
where are you now

Your hand upon a soapy wet body
you chuckled as the water splashed at you
oh the memories
they flood back in torrents

Now all that is left
the tears of heartbreak

You left with no word of good bye
I searched for ever
to no avail

You fell off the edge of the earth only to
return
as my nemesis
my albatross
my memory

I need you
more than ever
more than words can tell

Was it not just a small time ago
we slept as lovers do
where are you now?---question mark, make the question

Your hand upon a soapy wet body
you chuckled as the water splashed at you
oh the memories
they flood back in torrents

Now all that is left
the tears of heartbreak(are) instead of (the)
You left with no word of good bye
I searched forever—no space
to no avail

You fell off the edge of the earth only to
return
as my nemesis
my albatross
my memory.-full stop?

my dear Chrys, this brings much sadness, yet in your 3rd stanza you have managed to bring him back, with the memory of his laughter, which really is powerful, i myself can almost hear it, and also his fun personality. thats a kudos from me.

Thank you...Teddy
