The Gap

A concept I have grown
Fond of recently
Is the idea that
The only closure
You need to make
Is the closure between you
And your own mistakes


I learned to love his absence
For his absence corresponded
With the exponential growth
In the presence of my own self-love


I never felt at peace
And now my world is standing still 
The war used to consume 
But now no voids call me to fill 
I used to never sleep
Now nights bring dark against my will
I never feel too weary
Now that the calm seeks all my thrill


She approached me in all black
With her fingers dipped in gold
I tried to get some answers
But her responses left me cold
She gazed out of the window
And was speechless for some time
She turned to me and whispered
“I miss that light inside my eyes”
