I choke on remnants of you
left lingering in the air
suspended above me
permeating the ground beneath my feet
thwarting my escape
from memories that suffocate
in the absence of you

The feeling of “you’ or “your absence” is powerful. I love it. It is difficult to express this longing sentiment. You did it beautifully and gracefully.
Many thanks, Nina! I had a difficult time with this one. I appreciate your kind words.
