I thought I knew what love is then

I tasted the salt in tears,

The bitterness of separation

And dashed my knowing to a heap on the ground

While the saline tracks sloughed through the dust in my eye

Leaving a stinging path behind,

The pith clung to tongue keeping the bitterness still,

Just a while longer until

From within the silence

Something stirs,

An awareness dawns:

I awaken and know love again.
