While I sort through the temporal
you surrounded yourself with
I cry over spilt soda bleeding my heart.
My lips glued with anger
I smile as if nothing matters
except pansies and glass figurines.
Why doesn’t have an answer.
You were love, forgiveness and joy.
Today is too dark for sunshine.
With Ann Murray singing “You Needed Me”
I swallow the failure haunting me and
wonder if salt poured over wounds really heals.
