You

      I never knew loneliness until I met you
      I never noticed before that you were not here
      A feeling of halfness instead of being part of one
      Something incorrectly one at the heart of two

      My bed was never so empty until you were in it
      I never noticed just how much I wasn't there
      How quietly the spaces envelop me, and I wonder
      How I ever slept with all these empty sheets

      I never thought I knew the answers this wrong
      Until I tried to guess my way through us
      And drowned in details worth knowing
      About the general and particular, you.
