the lack of your presence is suffocating
not morning mist is the bright sunlight
but an ever-looming gloom
and i don't know how the lack of one's presence seems to be a physical form
but it is.
a longing, small child tugging on a dirtied sleeve
empty eyes longing for a hug or a smile
something, starving through the winter
weeping, sorrowful tears soaking the off-white carpet for something taken for granted
lying in repose
waiting
waiting.  
as the breath from lungs is forcefully taken.
