punishment
by susan frankovich
~~~~~~~
long ago
my sister was taken
from me

and part of me
died that night

now
my partner's been
taken from me

and the rest of me
feels dead

i don't understand

i get close to a
person and then
as punishment

they're taken
away from me

all i want to do
is love someone

why should i be
punished for that?
