vacancy

the void screams
and rakes my insides
as I lie languid
in the sunlit room
(where you last touched me)

a breeze passes through
and I wonder why
the birds don’t hear
the noise in my heart
they just keep singing
to each other
to the world
as if everyone should be so happy
(and I beg them to hush
sssshhhhh)

because all I really hear
is the emptiness
that crawls on my skin
and this time
its echo passes into my hips
where your hands once were
(not so long ago)

and so I lie
in this brightly filled room
(with the feeling of being
hollow)
and my hair tickles my skin
as the breeze pushes it’s way in
uninvited
it can almost make one feel
that all is okay

but in this moment of
vacant space
my fingers float slowly
between my thighs
so that I can fill myself up
the way you used to
and maybe
(only maybe)
for just a moment
I won’t feel so empty
