she would slip in and out of the room



to say hello and goodbye

sputtering thoughts


i wrote a second time   



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.
