I heard you needed this today

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.
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.
You’re wound up and wounded.
Anxiety is at its peak.
Don’t worry, I won’t use that word again.
No stigma here.
No, no. There will be no betrayal while you’re with me.
You can breathe;
