Uncover the Sun

Used To


I’ve heard people say

you can get used to anything

if you wait long enough


like the hole in the place

where a mind once

thought like yours


or the bare spot

where a tree used to stand

smiling its fruit up


or the cold empty

where warmth once pulsed

between two friends


or the exciting ideas

that have fallen down

and can’t get up


I don’t know if it’s worse

to never get used to anything

that hurts


or to get used to the missing

when someone or something

no longer is
