Stealthy pains
Furtive lies
Secret implies

I am bleeding.
I am hurting.

From a distance

  1. I’ve been reading so many posts on hurt and pain and it’s just so heartbreaking. Each post describes it so beautifully, it makes me want to send a lot of love and hugs around. So, that’s what I’m doing. Whether the words are fiction or not, hugs and love cannot destroy the world 🙂 🙂

      1. Oh, not just you. Others too, myself included. We all have written so many pieces on it. I guess words really do help in letting it all out 🙂
