Absentia

I feel you in your absence. A severed limb, A skipped heartbeat. Gone, like the blossoms of yesteryear, Slain by the violence of winter’s war. Yet, the feeling remains. You live in whispers, Abiding in echoes. The traces of phantom pain.   © Michael Iannucci-Berger

The Salt-Wife

I loved you in the dark, In the spaces between. Beyond reason’s stifling light. Your arms around me, Like eagle’s talons, Guide me skyward in your embrace.     © Michael Iannucci- Berger
