The Lover That Couldn’t Mourn
He caressed my breast in dark nights
When lovers legitimately unite
To express unworded emotions
That failed them during the day.
The smell of his skin made me long
Like the aroma of my mother’s food
Made me hungry instantly.
I wanted him, I wanted more
So I invited him again
To the dance in my flower garden
As we played and rolled like babies
Until day break when he’d put on his suit
And wear a new persona
To go on with his other life.
Recently I heard he passed
His mother cried
His sister was sad
Wife and family saddled with a loss.
I peered through my window
As his casket was taken away
Frozen by the pane
My grief will never be shared.
