He Misses Her





The blood of ink
Wept from his soul
Cannot abolish
Or console
The hollow
Filled
With echoes
Where
Once he loved
Her.
But now the air
Is like a stair
That charts the miles
Of broken hearts
And shattered
Smiles...

  1. Love everything about this short hourglass poem. The pain it's filled with is almost palpable.
