Her presence emptied the world

(picture from the internet)

Her absence filled the world-conversely

 

A void of faces
Emotionless
robotic
emoting
Conditioned
Browbeaten
Steady suction
thoughts imprisoned
Independence hocked
Pinned moths
Flailing
breathless
resigned
hopeless
helpless
futility
queen bee
Ruling
The queen is dead
Long live the queen

Her absence filled the world

Her absence filled the world
blanketing
departure flooding
vacuum consumed
emotional downpour
drenching
grief, joy, relief, bliss
cheek by jowl kiss exist
zero is zero no more
 physicality
vacuum- reclaimed
by essence
of spirit
peopling
minds
of
kith
kin
foe
friend
Joes
 
indeed
 
Blanketing
 
her absence filled the world
truly?
