I sleep with your absence

I sleep with your absence

My arms embracing the emptiness you leave me

I walk with your echo

My steps searching for your rhythm

I talk with your silence

My ears straining for your voice

I long for your love

My heart molded to the hollow only you can fill

You are my food and drink

You are my oxygen

When we’re apart, I know that I need you

When we’re together, I have all that I need
