by Hazel Dulay

Your absence is like an ocean, I’m sinking

It’s like the firmament, stretched over everything

It’s also like a black hole I kept on clutching

But mostly, it’s like a quicksand

First, changing

Followed by weakening

With devouring

Comes damaging

The part of needing

Then numbing


At last nothing
