What Have I Done To Her ?


” Sweet thing, soft thing,

that she knocked the wind out of herself !

Why don’t you want to come home anymore?

Why do you keep triple checking the locks on your doors?

When did it get so easy to be hard?
To put the phone down
without texting back?

To throw in apologies
and walk away,
from whatever might grow from them? ”
