Day Fifteen

With a smile
and a hope that
there won’t be tears,
break the news.
and in the quiet loudness
as I grin and shrug
and brush it off
know the tears have already fallen.
and this is only
the affirmation
there will be no redemption
for either of us.


Unclear responses leave much to speculate. Will I? At this point, it’s time to say goodbye. Truth is the herald of Respect.

 (I really did write this one on the fifteenth, was just waiting for day fourteen to write itself.)
