Monday After

If I can’t have you here,
I’ll have peaceful joys,
even somewhat dreamlike
tearful hours,

How I’ll fear that you’re suffering
on dragging days
when you want to be tired
and drift away

while on walk on my own
veiling thoughts from my face
reminiscing in silence
your kiss and your taste

in this love-ridden bleakness
my only complaint is
the price of your sweetness
consumes me with pain

still I shalln’t be defeated
but can’t be the same
when I speak empty phrases
yet think of your name.

– Lennie Bezwik
