Gemma
you are the pride in my heart


Was my name possession
or feeling struck and captured beneath
bloody walls of your skin

Were you caught in revel of your own words
and how beautiful they sounded
did I ever match them

I hover like scarred beast
over every sentence that erodes
weathered by constant thrash of bitter cold

Gemma
you are my tears


Precognition of all you would cause
I became our tears, and wept for you
I know you could never cry for yourself

Looking through you and around this debris
so beautiful still beneath the change
I want not for these words to fade

Would the sky of pride fall black
if I broke silence and asked when
all that I was, changed

I know I won't
for yes, the petty sake, of holding my own
in the war of silence you waged.

This kind of pride is what cost me someone I love...

Well said.
