The Void

the feeling of needing
someone or something
is looking in the mirror
and seeing a hole
gaping, clean

where the bullet went through.
there’s nothing there

not even a bullet
to leave you a hint
as to what you’re missing.
going through the motions is

shoveling snow, raking leaves

slow, steady, void of anything but
searching for it, them, him, her

is hopeless at this point, don’t you think

what do you do when

you don’t know
what it is that you’re missing
