Wept

Last night
I wept for me.

as I laid still
surrounded by the eeriness of the night
listening to the melodies of Roberta’s cries.
please don’t refuse me
please let me love you
until the morning comes *
lyrics screaming, wailing
inside of me.
falling on death ears.
too many miles separate us for sounds to reach you.
press between us
building makeshift dams against our desires.
remind us of our realities.

Last night
I wept for him.

darkness flooding our curled bodies
as silence reached in and whispered my regrets.
I held him close to me until his dreams became my dreams.
he unaware of the battle raging inside of me.
his love so achingly warm, so enveloping
served as a shelter for my war-torn self.
my doubts and my fears seeped through its cracks
making room for love’s enemies.
how can I hurt him?
my love.

Last night
I wept for him.

Last night
I wept for us.
