In Memoriam I

You cry before waking
at times.
A fierce, wide-open wail
comprised primarily of fear
and anguish.
What is it you are
dreaming of?
What nightmares haunt your brain
through naps that look
so peaceful?
Past digressions of
past lives?
Memories of those who have
trespassed against you?
Or have all of the
names, faces, loves
been washed away with this new life,
leaving behind only
the sediment of
tears, tense fists, and a cry
before waking?
