what it means to miss someone (verb)Mature

what it means to miss someone (verb):

the gaping hole in the center of your throat
      that screams to be released, that only knows
      how to escape in the heat of saltwater tears.
the widening void between your ribs
      that constantly whispers, we are missing something,
      something is absent from us, we are incomplete.

the hollows between your fingers
      convincing you that somehow your bones have shifted
      like tectonic plates but nothing’s filled their holes.

The End
