late at night
there are moments of endless length
when the noise is not so loud, when the ache
does not seem like pain, when i do not feel
like you abandoned me, gave up while i
continue the struggle.
they are soft moments i fill with candlelight
forgiveness and reflection. moments when i
can exhale each breath without the sadness
crippling me -- turning my eyes
moments when i can accept your death
and all the little daily deaths as part
of my life, a life that has these
quiet moments of alone.
Life's disappointments are harder to take when you don't know any swear words. -- Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes)
