separation prayer (for T.)

that unholy quiet sunday
you expressed relief
to be released
i remember
an emptiness
so quiet that
my ears

is this freedom?
to unravel the
beautiful tapestry
of love and pain
that bound us
stifled us
shaped us
mostly for better
but often for worse

two scared kids on a lonely bed
trying our best to be thankful
confiding in each other
attempting to part as friends

my prayer for your future
my prayer for mankind:

live well for yourself
and may you never
know isolation
in another’s arms
