L.A. the Blog: Poetry “The Moments Between Breath …”

The space between
Staring eyes stuttering over
The impossible word sorry.

Striving against a mountain
Of a tear, growing
Larger with each pause
Between breaths,
The void stretches
Out even as a
Hand reaches out
To refute every truth
That is and isn’t said.

“It’s hard,” she says …
“Things happen,” he said …
“It get’s easier,” she recalls,
“We love you,” he affirms.

“I’m okay,” she lies, and
Still the word hangs in
The air, hangs in between
Breaths and pounds with
Each heart beat …

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry …
