friday five

chance encounter

the secret lay
hidden in a roll
of film, years had
gone by with no
one the wiser.
until the day the
doctor spoke the
truth over the
telephone. something
long forgotten, a brief
encounter in a stairwell,
resulting in a lifelong
change of heart. will
her family finally know
she can no longer hide.

welcome back leigh. nice to see you haven't lost your touch while you've been absent. i hate that anyone has to feel they can't share their deepest feelings with surrounding loved ones. why is it that everyone feels the need to judge when someone is different. i would like to think they add flavor to an otherwise boring life. thanks for sharing such a strong poem. have a nice weekend.
