Absence of Your Presence

Hearing your voice and feeling your touch has always made me smile,
But it makes it harder to be so far from you even for a short while.
I can hardly breathe through the hole in my chest every time I close my eyes
Because I’m incomplete when I’m on my own, with you the missing piece resides.
In the absence of your presence I’m scorched by a tireless, longing flame,
And every part of my being is screaming out your name.
Your arms can’t reach far enough to entangle me in your embrace,
So I keep wishing we could be in the same exact place
Because I hate the feeling of not being in your midst
And I hate the feeling of you being missed.
