by June Labyzon


he fell hard
on a soft carpet
and all his words
are forever bruised
purple and black
too bitter
for me to
who loved
from afar
though never
dared to say
and became
bruised nonetheless

I dare to say June. I love your ode, the reading of which obliterates distances and bruises and makes one well on the way to healing such.

This poem says to me that romance is only meaningful if both get on the same page.

. . . I like the acknowledgement of honest bruises at a distance (I know them too well). Nice work.
