Bent Words

September 14, 2022

One hug
Like I stole from the recess of a building on Main Street
One touch
To wake my numbing skin

One smile
To catch my breath
And one dream
To bring me back again

One tear
In the middle of the night
To unstop the flood
Of one endless ache

One question
I must answer
Which one
Is the mistake?
