Something happened

Something happened, some defect that you saw
That gave you pause to doubt, what did you see
In our biographies, what fateful flaw
Had you slip away, to limbo’s emperies.
For there are no memories we can take.
No inference or hope that may draw breath.
Nothing to cling to, just the simple ache
Of the world falling, falling onto death.
I have tried to look for you, peering out
Beyond ebullient seas and the chill
Of the cold stars shining bring naught but doubt,
As I see you in my dreams, stark and still.
For what the world forgets and doesn’t miss
Cannot console a grief as pure as this.
