Poetry. Thoughts

Grief.

Blindsided,

Catapulted to my chest, breath stolen,

In a second, swiftly,

Unsuspecting.

Mundane ticking of the clock,

It keeps going, ruminating.

But I am somewhere else,

In another room, in another life

With a presence that I long for so dearly,

In a scene so vivid I can smell it,

I can feel her hand, hear her voice.

The empty ocean swells in my abdomen.

Aching for a scene I will never experience again.

A ripple of empty darkness.
