Having Never Said

The rain stains me
Suiting my mood
With Blacks and Blues
And a violence swells my head
Thinking of the Dead
Specifically of a friend.

She died at only twenty

The mourning hearts were many
And mine heavy among them
Having never said…

She knew, and I showed her as much
Still, there’s something to be said
About Its saying before she’s dead.
