By Sharon Prater-Pope

Day by week by year
One by one by one
Negative words, actions,
Emotional pounds,
Pile up
Until all that’s left

Are two strangers

Sharing a house.

Only when one is taken
Does the other realize

What has been lost…

A lot of weight in those words...
Amazing how much one can say with so little.
Wonderful poetry... thanks for sharing. xoxo
