How life is adorned with twists and turns
After flitting for so long between this one and that,
You find THE girl and immediately she decides – to go.
Not disappearing from life, in the way of an end,
Leaving a yawning absence, a hole, a void,
And one that is entirely impossible to fill.
One longs for so much in this life,
The food your diet forbids, the greener grass on the other side,
But never before have I felt such a gaping crevasse
Like an errant limb removed from you, or a missing quadrant
Barely able to shift the focus of my thought
And worst of all, the loneliness of every night.
When the presence of the pain recedes, after the initial,
The profundity of the loss, the need to be reunited
Takes hold of everything you do – a crushing, agonised block.
