Without you it's quiet here
Lonely and dark
The shadows haunt
As i stand watching

Lonely and dark
The silence scares
As i stand watching
Waiting and hoping

The silence scares
As unforgiving sadness engulfs me
Waiting and hoping
Rescue me

As unforgiving sadness engulfs me
I'm sorry
Rescue me
I need your love

I'm sorry
Without you I'm alone
I need your love
I'm cold, i want your warm embrace again

Without you I'm alone
I just realized
I'm cold, i want your warm embrace again
And i just wanted to let you know

I just realized
The shadows haunt
And i just wanted to let you know
Without you its quiet here.

Cool poem. I especially liked the last verse. I myself just found out about pantoums, and I think the form is really powerful.
