A Thousand Thoughts

Standing outside wrapped

up against the cold

trying to make sense of

what you’ve been told.

You breathe out a misty

cloud while a feeling inside

wants to scream out loud.

You think better of it and

decide you need to walk,

now is not the time that

you are ready to talk.

A thousand thoughts

are crossing your mind

but none to prevent you

from feeling maligned.

What you have heard

came out of the blue

and now you’re wondering

who else knew.

What was going on

behind your back

that you could not see

your life was about to

fall off the tracks.

You take a deep breath

and turn on your heels,

it’s time someone else

knows how you feel.

  1. [Who else knew…]
    Sounds like someone who may have been living a double life.
    Secrets keep us sick.
    I know it has me thinking what’s going on here? 🤔
    Great writing!
