A Poem When Broken.

each night I’ll sleep a minute longer –

another inch of healing away from you,


i’ll talk a good game until my eyes can close –

then tiptoe around the thought of you,


on a couch –

whispering about your closed doors that couldn’t open,


or wouldn’t –

no matter what gust of love blew.
