‘Empty’ a poem by Branislav Petrovic

wind is blowing my hair

I’m not thinking straight

I can feel it, I can smell it

it feels like nostalgia

it smells like melancholy


lamp-post lights are on

my mind is off

empty streets and empty roads

alone in the unknown


no one on my right side

nor on my left side

maybe I should go straight

and if I don’t find you there

I’ll find you behind my back

creeping, like a shadow of my past


most people are home

they must be watching a movie

or a tv show

why am I not there

to feel the joy

am I the only one left here

to suffer the most?


I should leave this city

these streets and these roads

because you are not here

to fill empty spaces


– b.p.
