only (in) appropriate


seems only
(in)appropriate
that the day my love

Image result for love hand touch cheek

that i reacted from

Image result for slapping

25 years ago
and hearing the words, 
"why would you flinch?"
and me saying,
"i'm sorry"
with tears in my eyes
sadness in your eyes
knowing the past
sometimes leaves shrilling passages

so when i was putting away dishes 
and the pasts-last-dish
tumbled it's ultimate fate


Image result for broken dish

i knew
know
that sometimes
it's best to not understand
but move forward
on
everyday i left, 
knowing #whyistayed when i was young
and 
knowing #whyileft everyday
dealing with those surprise ripples
on tuesday's like this
