Comment on this Work

north star

on the other side of the world
you hold me in your heart
as home, your north star

I sit here hoping
you never return

I once held your name
so precious in my mouth,
saying it only with tenderness

it took me three tries
to remember it today

how cold,
to love a woman like me
who only loved you once
