The soft whimpers of her voice
The once charismatic
Found herself breaking down
in front of the individual she never understood well

the muffled sounds
unheard words
but the emotions were enough
to break through
the physical walls — that give a false sense of security
that all is contained

she never perceived herself weak
she had divorced once
found a new love
had three beautiful kids she learned to cherish

today it all came down
heaven help me now for this is not what I asked for
she closed the doors and spoke her heart

heaven help her, i prayed.
for if she didn’t want help, she wouldn’t have sniffled on the way out.
