The Absence Of Air
You left before you were gone, the room filling
with the black poison smoke of burned years
and I dropped to my knees and began
the braille search for escape while crawling beneath
the smolder and smother of a love extinguished,
lungs singed and winded, left gasping in the absence of air.
