I Miss You

The right words do not exist
  to explain this hole in my chest.
The waves crash and pull
   and I can barely stay afloat,
   drowning slowly
            in its monstrosity.
How can I describe this heartache?
Except to say I feel it in my fingertips,
                   I feel it in my bones.
Missing you is all consuming
                             without reprieve.
An endless hallway
                  and locked doors.
There is no sun, the stars all hide.
                     I'm in a vast emptiness.
