Warming

I will remember you
wrapping yourself,
around the shards
of ice
in your heart.
Because they were
solid and something
to hold on to.
From the mess
he had made of
your life.
When he lied and
left you and
left me too.
Because he was
not the person
we had thought
he was.
There was silence
for a time.
After that you rang
and we had coffee
where you said "It's over,
I'm done"
And your smile,
lit me up from inside.

He and you are (or were) the same person? I can be obtuse...

Because they were
solid and helped
make sense.

Then there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
Evidently Heaven is usually a veritable pandemonium, for the silence to be worth reporting.

The choir invisible can get pretty rowdy and there would be lots of soccer games being replayed.
