I woke up, eyes closed
on the left side
of the queen-sized bed
stillness
waiting
beside me
the rustling movement
of pale white curtains
sounded loud and strange

in the quietness
of the bleached kitchen
the pensive hum of the coffee maker
echoed
hammering
around me.
outside
the lilting call
of the street hawker
sounded loud and strange

I slowly drank my coffee
tasting and stirring
blackness upon blackness
bitter taste
hollow sound
emptiness staring back at me
from the bottom of the cup
the teaspoon falling
sounded loud and strange

sunlight slowly crept
along the wide floor
and the empty chairs
quietly looked at me
while the clock ticking on the wall
resounded
eternity
across my soul
Everything — without you
feels loud and strange ….
