Eclipse

You know when you look at the sun too long
and your vision clouds, spots,
and suddenly when you look away,
your entire world goes black?

I was blinded momentarily by the brilliance of you,
and once you left, the world continued in its dark dullness,
the same way it always had before.

But now I noticed it.

You were my sun, and nothing could prepare me for this absence of light. Nothing could prepare me for this absence of you.
