I’m waffle making

and suddenly

the loss of you

is palpable.

Did I ever make you waffles?

Still, your absence at this moment

overwhelms me,

and I fill the emptiness

with tears.

Sometimes it’s clear

there wasn’t much to say.

Some days words are woven into tapestries

of vivid hues and diamond bright

But other days words are wrapped around night,

just vast blackness,

nothing for a reader to hold onto

to pull themselves into the light.
