I am not glad that

you are gone

(have left)

but I am thankful

that while you were here

I chronicled our love

on my flesh

but my art is not that of

(clichéd)

dragons and skulls

or daggers

(though this may be next)

but of hearts and crosses and birds

and Bible verses

(Psalm 30:5)

that in their own unique way

provide both joy and pain

(each uniquely invoking tears)

in the morning mirror
