Ashes Of Life by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Love has gone and left me and the days are all alike;
Eat I must, and sleep I will,â€”and would that night were
But ah!â€”to lie awake and hear the slow hours strike!
Would that it were day again!â€”with twilight near!
Love has gone and left me and I don't know what to do;
This or that or what you will is all the same to me;
But all the things that I begin I leave before I'm through,â€”
There's little use in anything as far as I can see.
Love has gone and left me,â€”and the neighbors knock and
And life goes on forever like the gnawing of a mouse,â€”
And to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow
There's this little street and this little house.
