the way i love

she asks
‘Why can’t you write something cheerful?”

I can

‘Then why don’t you?’

Because i give voice to sorrow
and pain

voice to fear and dread

‘How sad. . .’

i give voice to hope
when there is no light
i give voice to the purging of the emotions
where bitterness is bitten back
i did not ask to be one of the voices of pain
but i never asked otherwise

Take my words if you will
That they might strengthen you
in an hour of need

This is the way i love
