Phantom

I can feel the soft caress of your hand upon my face, a phantom caress

Your hand has been severed from my life

The phantom caresses bring as much pain as they do pleasure

We grew to be one, the sudden and violent severing

Shock

Recovering from your love, no amount of therapy to fix

Now I wander

Life before you can’t recall; the rendering of two souls

Split

My body doesn’t realize you are gone forever,

The phantom pains come at unexpected moments

Memories of your skin next to mine causes me to shiver in excitement

Salve

Excitement swiftly turns into dread and grief

Phantom pains, phantom souls

Perhaps this pain signifies what we were, an emotionally made up connection that really never existed

What is worse?

All I have now is the aftermath, pulled apart against my will

Shattered

Daily activities seem so difficult, reliance on my other half, gone- forevermore

Like a solider returning from battle, I’ll never be the same
