Heart Hole

There’s a gaping chasm
Empty, hollow, waiting…
A you-shaped heart-hole
Sometimes tiny tidbits of your world
Waft this way
Drawn by magnetic pull
Crashing into me
They help soothe the edges
For brief moments as they land
Or on occasion, they amplify the absence
As they bounce around
Echoes of what is desired
Phantoms.

True balm to ease this open wound
Would be your words,
Your voice
Your image…
For now the trickling ointment
Smallest tokens that you care
Must suffice…
And for them
I am grateful
They matter oh so much
To my aching heart.

I
Love
&
Miss
You…
YOU—the missing piece
