The Simplest Of Words

Black Cloud

Sometimes the simplest of words

Hang

Suspended

The air

Thick

Suffocating

A year of your life passes you by

With one sentence

Everything around you

Grey

Muted

As if in a cloud

The voices speak

But they have no value

No meaning

“I’m sorry, can you repeat that?”

But it is of no use

Their words form sentences

Made into paragraphs

Filled with useless information

All so meaningless

Biopsy

Cancer

2 words tattooed behind my eyes

Embedded in my mind

Flowing through my bloodstream

“I’m sorry, I just don’t understand”

And I don’t

Why she cried…

Her past was not unlike most

Pieces of it

Public

Pieces of it

Hidden

Her friends

Similar to most

Sometimes

They came into her life

Sometimes

They left

On one particular night

A friend intervened

As she allowed disrespect

Simple words were spoken

They were calm

Direct

Gentle

Stated

With love

“We are leaving now”

They left

“It hurt me to watch you allow someone to touch you disrespectfully.”

Silence

“I wish only the best for you and pray that one day you will know how it feels to be touched by another with love”

Silence

Weeks later….

She had set new boundaries

Shared with her husband

Those painful secret pieces

They touched

Afterwards

A rusty old gate

Swung open

And she herself

Was unaware

Of why she cried
