Missing

The light in your eye
The touch of your hair
The silent space where once you were
The tender mouth
The intense glance
Knowing this
The death of romance
And things that say ‘I love.’

Stu asks us to today for poetics at dVerse to write about the things/people/moments/times we miss. This is my response to the prompt ~ great prompt, Stu.

  9. a short sharp emotional shock. The loss of love….maybe only the loss of a loved one competes in terms of pain thresholds. This is like a slap in the face from a jilted lover, which (rather strangely) i enjoyed!
