words

 

my friend offered to return some

she's like that   

 

(before i knew her well 

she would slip in and out of the room

 

reticent 

to say hello and goodbye

 

not that she is verbose now)

last night i wrote   

 

wrote in a way i would call tongue-tied

sputtering thoughts

 

i wrote a second time   

apologizing   

 

having used too many words to say so little   

it doesn't take many   

 

so she offered to give some back   

she's like that

Your words always create a touching effect. I'm always taken every time. This is so beautiful and conjures so much in mind. Tout simplement remarquable, thanks.

Oh, I really love this. I think of Pascalís famous ď If I had had more time I would have written a shorter letter. May she give you back a lovely word like petrichor.
