Unexpected Break-Up - Poem by Frank Davis, Sr.

Exhausted, he stands
waiting in the darkened space that was once
his home; a shroud of chilling desperation
descends upon his being. He cannot even consider
the possibility she will not return- afraid
if he did, he might soon disappear
into the emptiness. His mind whirls about
itself, and all he keeps thinking is: Ever
present will be her absence; ever absent
will be her presence. Interminable night
becomes endless day. Eventually
he sits down.
