ABSENCE

absence

I wake up
to the stillness,
to the stillness of the silence,
to the stillness of the silence beneath the shadows, 
to the stillness of the silence beneath the shadows in your absence,
still so present within all this emptiness

and then I realise
how much more room there is to breath.
