"I love you. I love you. I send this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. Hear me. I love you. And I'm sorry to leave you." -Jenny Downham

Empty is your bed
and your arms are vacant too
like the sky once was
before her star-lit eyes
lit up the moon and the sun.

The author's comments:
another poem I had to write for English. This one's called a Tanka. Its a system of syllables going 5/7/5/77. I quite like it.
