you've been gone two hoursMature

You’ve been gone two hours
and I don’t know why I feel so empty
when I’ll see you again but the echoes
of my heartbeat vibrate so loudly and so 
sharply inside of my ribs that I shake like
small explosions are taking place
beneath my skin - but there’s nothing there
except blood and muscle and bone and
all these traces you’ve left behind.

The End
