In the hollow place

Left by your absence

There is only this longing


Pulsing and aching 

Along with memories

That steal in on slippered feet

Late at night 

When my defences are down

And only darkness surrounds me

Here where there is no longer any light

I only feel that hollow

Becoming larger in the place you used to fit inside

As dying light fades to gloom

And I seek restlessly for solace

All alone in my empty room

Hollowness grows

As every breath of wind

Whispers your name
