Empty pockets of space

It’s 2:00PM and the sun is shining,

but all I can see are the shadows your presence have left behind.

Empty pockets of space where you began and I ended,

tied up together like headphones jammed in a pocket,

a mystery never to be solved.

Like clockwork I rise to meet a day I never wanted to meet without

the feel of your hand in mine.

Intertwined,  breath merged into yours, hearts synced,

perfect serenity captured within eyes untethered to the despair of reality.

It’s 2:00PM and the sun is shining,

but all I can see are the shadows your presence have left behind.
