Eileen R. Tabios


wake to a scent

of the woman you never were

one proactively believes

no memory is false

yesterday, the sand

shimmered with black diamonds

once, you opened

eyes and still loved me

tomorrow, the world

will form one black diamond

once, I loved

you back with much helplessness

and fear was only as real

as a black diamond
