Only some things make me cry at one AM on a Saturday night.
Sad movies ending in tears;
A heavy dark sky crying and wailing for my help.
The thought of my lover gone from me;
My resurrection from it;
Only some things make me cry at two AM on a Saturday night.
Two hours of heaving shoulders,
A musty shirt full of sweat;
Perfume and his cologne;
His absence by my side;
My hurting side,
Only some things make me cry at three am on a Saturday night
A hurting head.
Sound gone from my throat;
A runny nose;
His hands on the pages of my book for him.
My book for him.
Only one thing makes me cry at four am on a Saturday night
Just his eyes;
