Poem: One to Ten

One thing always stands out
Too sharply in the early morning
Three AM and I’m thinking again
For the love that we had back then
Five more minutes of punishment
Six things I could have done differently
Seven would have been the magic number
Ate meals sit on the table in my memory
Nine guests at the party watched you leave
Ten breaths I counted in the silence afterwards
