Physics of Love

In physics we learn
there is no cold
only the absence of heat.

What then can I make
of this sorrow:
Is it instead the absence of joy?

Taking it a step further,
can I say the opposite
of presence
is the absence of you?

In your absence
I feel your presence
most strongly
there is no absence of you,
only distance, perhaps,
and longing
for You.
