i feel a heaviness in my chest now,
one that i never felt until after
you left. i wonder if you will ever
know how often you made my
heart beat out of my chest.
you were a man of substance,
generosity, and tenderness.
you embodied friendship and
you knew what it meant to love.
i miss you, and i despise that this
is so true. i must confess that i
feel loneliness creep back into
my life whenever i invision you.
