AWAKENINGS

Sometimes it can take years to awaken...

The early light
splayed
across the nubby heirloom spread
you bought for me…
It wasn’t really my style.
I knew that.
I did not know
that you would be
Gone
from under it when I woke today.
Were your many gifts meant to please
Me:
Or were they yours to satisfy
You?…
To fill the void
you knew you would leave behind
Or meant to comfort my heart, feeling
Sliced by a knife?
The gifts you
Gave
were never what
You thought I should want.
These things are cold.
Tomorrow
I’ll pack them

to send to you…
so that you can
have part of me –
the part of me that
You wanted me to be.
