Remember every time
you wanted him, her, them
but never spoke
or reached out your warm hand

They moved forward and away 
oblivious to the rumbling
and thoughts unwelcome
you pressed into silence

It was too much to be raw
to risk loss like that
so none of us ever knew
we could be loved by you

One thought on “Remember”

  1. Feelings brought forth by these words are visceral. I spend days hoping that my hands are far enough extended. That she did not come close to me without knowing how vulnerable I desired to be in her presence.
