Another one on Absence

Your absence rings
In my ears
As if
Every voice
Not yours
Is a gunshot
Reverberating
In my skull

Your absence lingers
In every musical interval
As if
Every note
Sustains your existence
Behind my eyes

Yet my mind’s eye
Continues to blur you
As if you’re fading, still
Not quite a ghost, but not quite true
A shadow
I must hold onto.
