Just One Night

there were tears that flooded a silence
out a night in a courtyard and as far as I
could tell they were none for any wasting
her face melting with a pasty wax white
her friend stretched lent hands to her cheeks
wiping away the bent streaks spent of saline
her mouth moving in console I couldn't hear
the words but knew their effect to that of
it's alright, that all will be alright dear
it was one night, this is one night, just one
in a string of life's silence on love
