I am missing you

I am missing you
It is empty
Your space; 
In my mornings;
Left vacant;
By your abrupt departure.

It is void
Your place;
In my afternoons;
Left bare; 
By your sudden parting.

It is hollow
Your spot;
In my evenings;
Left blank;
By your rapid retreat.

Empty, void, hollow
My space, place, spot
Yearns for you
My mornings, afternoons, evenings
Are vacant, bare, blank
Without you
Your abrupt, sudden, rapid
Departure, parting, retreat
Has left a void in me.
I am missing you.
