In Your Absence

Slow drawn breath

Icy meander sliding down the corner of your mouth

The last smile left… 

Reflections in a river that is a single tear coming out 

Such a small world that left the universe where I lived

No longer looking back at my eyes now 

Holding on to something contrived as it no longer is

Yeah, all the things we did 

I can go back to asking myself just how 

Some die young while the others can only wish 

To not wilt so willfully 

Filled with hurt in me 

A house that is no home to me

As I grow alone I’ll be 

Stronger but still homesick

From the only place I knew

There with you

I'm just here. Until I'm not.
