Woman with a Headache


I remember

The love that shone in your eyes when you looked at me

The one sided smile that instantly appeared when I spoke

The wandering hand that searched for mine when i was near


I remember

Your soothing voice a balm to my raging nerves

Your strong arms a wall against the world outside

Your beautiful shoulders a pillar to lean on


I remember

The security of your love

The blanket of your attention

The comfort of your smiles


Now all I see

Your anger at all the things I do wrong

Your nonchalance at all the things I do right

Your silence, yes most of all, your silence


Now all I have is

Memories of what used to be

Resentment of what is

And hope of what could be
