A Dull Pain

I watch
time sliding past my
sightline, a motion
an emotion dull groaning pain
too long too far
she has been gone
146,000 heartbeats
and breaths…slowly
reminding me
shadows
sweeping
across the floor
chasing the hours
creating an empty
stain on skin
on tongue
she left for a moment
stayed
a day, a week, too
too long away from sight
from me
I watch myself
feel lower
lower
she is gone
and my eyes long
to see her
breath her in
empty the silence
between us
fill the holes
heal the wounds
stop the
dull
groaning pain
until she returns
with coffee
and
bagels.
