ache | day twenty-seven

there’s an ache down in my bones

a hollow sitting in my heart

that is roughly the size

of you

 

there’s an empty in my hands

where your fingers fit mine

and there’s a longing in my lungs

to hear the rhythm of your breath

 

my shoulder feels too cold

without yours pressed against it

and my laugh sounds flat

without yours twisted into it

 

see there’s this ache in my bones

because your bones should be walking through this world next to mine

and yet

they’re not.
