My Heart Bled A Word

My heart bled a word about you tonight
a word about your languishing in the dark
and your deep fears that you are all alone
ultimately alone in this world that has
nothing for you but arrows to fire and spears
to hurl at you in hatred after any use you
had for them – for us – was all used up

 And I am so sorry, so sorry I missed all
the hints which turned to silent pleading
for prayers to be said and hope to be stirred
and words to be bled and eyes to see you
are beautiful – you’ve the moon to offer, but
that’s not important, not the real thing at all
It’s only that you’re here.  Invaluably human.
