Our words stung
like a salted blade
cutting through our egos
in both directions

He let go quicker than I
He usually does

I widened the gap
with my over-thinking
like a tremoring fault-line
preceding an earthquake

and I brought it up again
“Oh that,” he says
“That was only temporary”

The rumbling passed
Nothing collapsed

About geniecan

Born and raised in " America's finest City" received BS degree in nursing years ago... main career besides wife and motherhood ( and now a grandma)was as a hospice RN for 18 years...Take great joy in finding the good in all things and believing that " No Thing is Ordinary" the title of my blog. I am working on a children's picture book story named R-Qu.. a rock falls of his mountain. Writing poetry is one of my happiest things to do. Yoga, water aerobics,, gym exercise and walking our wheaton terrior, Finley, with my husband Jim are favorite things...oh yes...singing in the choir at Church and recognizing God as #1... are most important... I also have a home based business with magnetic and far intra red health care products..peace to all who read this, Love, Jeane
