You did not know.
Or perhaps you
did not listen
To the true depth of sadness
In her voice.
The exaggerated laugh.

Maybe you felt you had said all there was to say.

Maybe you looked away
From the broken heart in her smile
The silent plea
In her tenderness towards others.
The quiet tears
In the reach of
her fingertips.
And now you’re left
Shaking your head
And wondering
Sometimes even
Cannot save the flesh and bone
Of a soul
Who longs so desperately
To go home.
