smiles come easier

when hearts are healing
a chapter closes
a chapter begins

a poet is amazed
what will she write
the muse is asking
where is her pain

and then i whisper
o sweetheart, rest

its more important
for hearts to heal
than to compose these pages
in burgundy tears

the bloodied ink
takes a breather
and off it goes to see
another weeping clown

farewell i say
take your time
and even if you visit
keep it short

smiles come
a lot easier to me
than jotting down
my crumpling form
