Poem: This Hole Deepens

Author:

For my wife after being away for a week.





This Hole Deepens


Missing you

Wanting you

Remembering you

...

This hole deepens.



A light touch

A passing smile

A soothing echo of 'hey!'

...

This hole deepens



Feeling ineffective

Sullen & empty

Overcome by a smoke hazy gloom

...

This hole deepens.


Anxious for tomorrow

Trembling with anticipation

A translation of life, love

as with you

by you

in you,

...

This hole

...
