Don't know what to say, so poem

Behind her, there was noise, like a restaurant or a bar.
People laughing, talking, living.
Bright red.
I said.
Sigh. Wait till morning. Come in to see me.
The night stopped quick
In trips to the bathroom to catch
Moments where I was losing a little of me
Stumbling back to and from in the moonlight
Letting the tears well, but not fall
Controlling that instead, while the red fell down
Without my asking, or knowing, without my doing, without cause
Or reason or purpose.
You didnít
But I did. I lost.
The morning comes and a long drive in the rain.
Watch red fill the tube from my arm Ė
Look away not for the loss of blood, but for the truth that I know
Is held there
In that tube.
Sitting in a room with a hand on my back, and a sympathetic face to my front
Iím alone. Itís over I know.
And red
Bright red
For the rest of my life
Will remind me of
