perfectly sad


i am perfectly sad in her absence
like an ocean without waves or sound
i drown in what is missing

i crave her face and fingers
and hair and toes
and inhale the four small hours of memories
i made with her

i trace her name
carved out so delicately in rose stone
then i gently pry my heart
off the dirt
covering her perfectly sad grave
