I can’t comprehend
this cold pillow next to my head
all the room in this bed
the silence that surrounds me
the dark sinking feeling
that it will be so many nights
before you return to me
torn away by another’s lies
I cannot conceal these tears I cry
calling out for you
wishing you were home
unable to escape this mess
or breathe deeply without you
I gasp for shallow breaths
and count off the days
until you return to me
and I can live again.
