Star crossed lovers of tragic beauty
Heroic stranger for too long,
Until the sands laid claim
Stoic woman and two girls – in time, three women steeling their way
Alone again her painful sorrow indelible…
My own babes beautiful women, so alike and not
The one aloof, unreachable
The other a future of questions and fears.
Ache in my heart, my gut – is a calcification in my bones.
