I heard you needed this today

September 9, 2017 § 4 Comments

I heard you needed this today:

a kind word, a smile, a listening ear.

It doesn’t matter how I knew,

just that I am here.

Go ahead; it’s okay; no one will see.

Your exhaustion is just exhaustion.

Okay; fine.

Your secret weakness will stay with me.

You know all the cliches so I won’t waste your time.

But I’m listening if you need to echo them

long enough to unwind.

Yes, unwind.

You’re wound up and wounded.

Anxiety is at its peak.

Don’t worry, I won’t use that word again.

No stigma here.

Just mystique.

No, no. There will be no betrayal while you’re with me.

You can breathe;

just breathe

comfortably.
