Cruel Twist

The searing pain of disappointment
love unmatched
drops you deep in this well of grief

A once friendly landscape
now transformed
by incalculable sorrow

In the span of a conversation
you know yourself reduced
to breath and bones

The brightness of others, withering
our lightness assaults and offends
Nevertheless, I must say:

Your ghost can help herself to the
Haagen Dazs in the freezer
