don’t ask me to be strong

but m’Lady
how can you ask that i relinquish
the very heart of my being
without bleeding

if you are not here
how can i speak?

without your warmth
how can i not be cold?

don’t ask me to mark your passing
without a kind of death for me
for such callous behavior on my part
would be the most egregious lie

please
don’t ask me to be strong
it just isn’t fair
