Look out...here comes Roberta!

The Veil

She cries
every single
solitary night

Great heaving sobs
that shake her
to the core

I continue to
tell her how
I love her

Sometimes I
scream it until
I am hoarse

To no avail
I fear it falls
on deaf ears

So every single
solitary night
she cries

And I stand behind
the veil
and scream

Shouldn't be commenting, I suppose, but this one really makes me shiver.

Thank you so much for replying jta! Can you tell Kate I adore her and I want that book? Please???!

You are very kind.
