What is Without?

by Minna Von Walden

What is the moon without the stars in the sky? The fair skin without the freckles? The heart without a beat? The book without words? The tree without the branches? The movie without the screen? The key without the lock? The ocean without the water? My lips without yours? I’ll tell you, my love. Lost, alone, empty.
