Can’t Talk About
 
 
in the corners of your eyes
tears swell
you describe the doctors, the police,
the way he held you down
powerless, fear
your daughter screaming
 
But we share so much
I like his company
He understands me
I don’t know…
 
 
You still can’t talk about Love
 
you laugh,
a handful of dust and pebbles
hurled into a dry well
 
the path is overgrown
few feet pass here now
just my occasional journey for supplies
but I can see the way clearly
- the highway of our romance  –
 
memories cascade like waterfalls
so many sacred sites
places we stopped, laughed, made love
 
You still can’t talk about love!
