Ana Cried


On the day

that I left Hawaii


some not so

small part of me


When it was time

for Brian

to drive me

to the airport

Ana broke down

and cried



my whole life

behind me

to embark

on a different trek

was a release

and relief

all the pain

shame and grief

like leaving

the scene

of a wreck


Now I

only see Ana

on FaceTime

She's in Mexico

taking care

of Mom and Dad

I wish I could

reach through

this screen

to the places

we've been

and reclaim those times

that we had
