Clairvoyant

tightly rounded shoulders.
arms crossed
defiant.


emotional mma champ
4 decades running.
all
holds
barred.

pursed and
shriveled lips
frame an austerity
so sharp,
your acerbic wit
oft goes
unchallenged
&
unnoticed….


like your heart.


not yet shriveled,
it is tight with a yearning,
for that breath of life
denied
so long ago,
time
and time again.


you see,
when you looked in my eye
and said,
“I’ll be fine”.

I already knew.


and you did too.
