The Vacuum

The silhouette of her desires 
shadowing my thoughts 
from dawn the dusk 

and when her words 
spoken in yore 
brushes my desirous soul 
the vacuum that exists today 
discovers itself 
with a crashing clamor 

as if the Elysian we nurtured 
not too long ago 
has come crashing down 
and the splinters 
of your absence 
piercing my existence 
inch by inch, 

the blood refusing to recede 
is now smearing 
my world 
one drop at a time 

and in such agony 
the  irony remains 
I still yearn for you 
with a pensive smile
