The Month of Lymurit: Only One

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;

His death,

My resurrection from it;

Our ascension;

God.

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,

Stitches.

Recovery.

Wellness;

Only some things make me cry at three am on a Saturday night

A hurting head.

Dry eyes,

Sound gone from my throat;

Scratchiness,

A runny nose;

Dry skin.

His hands on the pages of my book for him.

My book for him.

Him

Only one thing makes me cry at four am on a Saturday night

Eyes.

His eyes.

Just his eyes;


Only one.
