I searched for you in the night
and my hand only met the air.
I listened for the sound of your breathing
but heard my own instead.
I made your favorite meal –
somehow it’s just not the same.
When we were first in love
I remember telling you I’d like to
open you us and
crawl in next to your heart.
Now I feel as if
I’m the one who’s been dissected,
left with a gaping hole in my life,
where you used to live.
Sometimes it’s almost unbearable
going through the days without you.
I’m like a robot executing
expected movements without emotion
…….except I miss you
so badly it hurts.
