Tremulous memories

My dazed shiverings last all the day;
And my weeping at night makes me ever-wakeful.
Nothing matters in the silence of emptiness,
Endless sighing in the black void of nowhere.
Yet I am not alone in this I know, for there are
Tears pouring from so many other raw-red eyes
In other empty houses throughout the world,
And they accompany me in identical pain,
But hopefully I shall soon see some semblance
Of a light at the end of the black tunnel.
Either that or I have severe indigestion tonight,
Thanks to over-indulgence in battered fish 'n' chips
And my haemorrhoids are playing up a bit as well.
