In the Absence

Balanced on the tip of Something’s jagged edge
Smoothed by our perception
Of everything tangible
That which is described only
By its absence
By its lack
Of substance

It’s what’s left when something leaves
When Something ends
It’s a hole that can never be filled
Nor found again
For even the memory of all that is precious
And mundane
Is gone
