The Gap

You may have noticed a gap

I’ve been gone for quite some time

silent for 7 months

I lost my center

my way

my voice

I stood motionless

as the world flew by

and couldn’t utter a single word

the only vibration past my quivering lips

were guttural moans

emanating from a shattered heart

It is time for those moans

to turn into words

that will tell the story

of my deepest

love and loss

we survive in moments

and grieve for eternity
