La Noches Mas Largas

I live in a place

Where life ends and

Misery begins

Pressed perfectly into

Compactly painful positions of

Longing and regret

The world isn’t finished

With me yet

Determined to teach each lesson

Before a merciful dawn

So I live in this place

My hurting a never-ending

Space, struggling to

Arise from

The longest night.
