Published here is poem number four in a series of one hundred poems. Deceased received a Certificate of Merit in the 'Chapter and Verse' competition. It was also published in the Syllables Anthology.
The poem revolves around the word 'Again' which merits a line of its own and is pivotal, highlighting the fact that the gap that was there before birth is now there Again


Rather, it is the thought that

You have ceased to exist that haunts me

Stalks my waking hours

Infiltrates my dreams

That you are not here nor there

Nor yonder

That you have diminished

Down the corridors of time

To become a gap in the crowd



Even by your absence

The milky way at noon
