absence

About being separated or apart from those you love.

absence

the clocks chime at five
like at one, two and three

there’s a void at my back
where your body should be

i listen in vain
for a lock to be opened

hear instead the sound
of a heart that feels broken

later, i watch
shadows dance on the wall

wrap myself and my grief
in a soft woollen shawl
