Thirteens

“Warriors are poets and poems and all the loveliness here in the worlds.”

On days like this,
poetry is not a balm or a comfort.
It is not enough
ever.
I can only see clouds and
darkness; not smiles and love.

On days like this,
no words are enough
to soothe
my troubled soul
and nothing is powerful
or beautiful enough
to soothe me.

On days like this,
I simply wait for
the storms of my tears
to pass.
