the question comes up
why have you been silent for months?
I have been empty
of the sacred desire to pen down
to watch myself
stand on the edge of my abyss
and not cry
for loss and findings
I want to stop writing about losing
but even while I breathe, I lose
this is why I have been silent for months
there will be words, I pray
there will be. words. I pray
every single night.
