Things That Make Me Cry

Things That Make Me Cry–

planetariums
black cats
Judy Garland singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic
dark nights lying awake at 2 in the morning
my dad’s enormous house
flame-glow sunsets
saying goodbye
waiting for text messages from the woman who broke my heart
knowing my dad is a great father now, just not with me
missed and ignored opportunities
physics textbooks
phone calls
The Lord of the Rings
honesty
compliments
insults
silence in a church
singing in a church
church
the last night before the school year starts
the box of ashes that sits on my mantle
driving down Cypresswood Road
choices
my students
a rosary made of roses
endings
endings
endings


Signed,
Silent Sister
