Poem: This Hole Deepens

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
