Absence Undone


How is distance measured

When like the moon

Thoughts of you break upon my shore

The tide of your gravity

Washes the sands

Amid broken shells and remnant starlight

What gap exists

When every bell rings your name

Each mermaid voice in refrain

A salt-water misted memory

Rusting in red, a love stained heart

The orchid scent that calls sweetly

Of the flowers in your hair

Your kisses blowing on the breeze

Sparkling wave-kissed flashes

The moonlit reflections that twinkle

Yet I only see your eyes

A sad reflection in your tears

Across space I feel you there

Absence is undone

As the world delivers your beauty

In all that I behold

You, my love, are never far away

    This piece is simply heavenly Brad. Honestly every single line is beautifully written. Your ending is such a perfect summation of such an intensely romantic piece.
    Funny you mentioned mermaids in this one. I got behind on my reading trying to write.

    I don’t have a favorite line as I would just have to include every incredibly romantic word.

    Hope you have an amazing day. We’re you always such a romantic Brad? Sending love as always my dear friend. πŸ€—πŸ’•β€οΈJoni
