Another Friend’s Grave by Anna Stuart

Another Friend’s Grave
by Anna Stuart

Experience matters little.

Having traveled here before
does nothing to ease the sorrow.

Losing love loses nothing in numbers.

The heart’s comfort is only
the knowing you have company
in where you are going.

Tonight’s Argument by Anna Stuart

Tonight’ s Argument
by Anna Stuart

It is a brazen word you carve
into the air tonight.

Your vocabulary abruptly
shatters all my arguments.

I lose my strong hold
of stubborn justifications.

“I love you no matter what.”
flies across the room

hitting me harder than
I ever dreamed any words would.

I surrender knowing I lost the argument
but still have won you.


Anna Stuart lives and writes in New Jersey.
