Sunny side up eggs
don't slap me in the face

command me to smile.

Let me sit with this pain.

As each new mourning
the sun coaxes me
to witness

the nourishment
in the once dark skies
now lightened

I'll come to terms. And if there is any magic
in my thinking

it's that a curse
is best answered with a blessing

but not a lie.

I'm grateful that you are happy
as for me...I have reason to cry.
