Absence Makes the Heart ---

Your absence hurts me,
Like a persistent toothache
Or a pair of too-tight shoes.....
But, worse, your hard face,
When finally we meet,
Leaves me panicked, gasping --
A doomed and thrashing swimmer
Drowning in your indifference.

    A strong start and an even stronger finish; between the idea and the reality, as T.S. Eliot said, falls the shadow. Great penning!

    I love your style of writing... The phrases you use to express yourself... Lovely.
