I Weep for Her

I Weep for Her1.jpg
Just too much pain to bear
Stub it, stub it out
Starve it till it bleeds to death
These passions are my demons'

Last night I cried in my lover's arms
Each cell in my body had waited
For that one phone call
None except my heart knew of -
The call from - Her

But it did not come.

So I cried and cried in my woman's arms -
Not knowing my angst, she asked
Why are you crying so much?
Has someone said something to you?

I shook my head -

How can I tell her?
How hard it is to bear
This silence?
How can I tell her?
I did not cry because
Someone said something
But, because
Someone I wanted to hear from
Did not say anything?
I cried because she was so silent.

Does it take so long to process pain?
So much denial!
Whom could I hold and cry uncontrollably with?
The safety of unquestioned tears
Are not always present.

My cells have finally dried out.
Just too much pain to bear
I tried to stub it, stub it out completely
I fasted for days on end -
Food, they say, excite the mind
These passions left me only for those days
They are my demons'here to stay.

Silence frightens me more than words
They hide emotions I cannot address
Therefore I weep nestled at my lady's breasts
She does not question my tears
Just gives me the space to cry ' for Her.
