Absence Divides

clouds roll over the horizon

blanketing my mind

this dark gray heavy mass unfurled

creating an epitaph of confusion



despite all the love and protection

that enveloped us

absence drove a wedge

splitting your heart in twain



that twisted spear of absence

oh how I wish I could turn back

and lose myself in you

again ….



found my world in you

lost myself with you

now I am lost, alone

having lost my world
