Rewritten Lives by J. Elliot Howard

Only So Much

Oh dear, here

I am again

I fear

with a tear

because of

an unavoidable


A pain rooted in

the very marrow

of my being.

Another good-bye

that I am not unique

in giving,

but in my own critique

it is impossible not

to cry.

Please know

as you go

into the arms

of one who

will heal your


and take away

your tears.

At this point

I am too selfish

to enjoy your

pleasure because

for the rest of my

life. I will have

no more measure

of you, of us,

but the treasure

of what was.

And it hurts to

the touch,

and for now...

I can feel

only so much.
