Pain: Water’s Fourth Phase

This year I’ve learned
What is and is not
soluble in tears,
and how it feels
to drown in their depths

Star-crossed love,
separated by a bus ride
and a lifetime.

I do not know when I will stop mourning
a man who still lives

Pain: Water’s Fourth Phase

Star-crossed love,
