Loss

The rhythm of the world continues
Around me
Around this blackness

You have left me

Torn

I will not recover this loss
And yet,
The rhythm of the world
Continues

Your voice still echoes
Within me
And I rise
The familiarity of you
A part of my beating

- no longer -

and I fall again
into my depth
the rhythm of the world
continues around me

but I do not feel it
