A Thank You Note (OctPoWriMo Entry #16)



Thank you
for teaching me how
to have whole conversations
with myself, a monologue
of empty spaces where
sometimes
you made words.

I’m sorry for my anger;
it sat with me in that vinyl booth
eating blackberry jam, buttered toast.

I’m not sorry I yelled at you.

Thank you for being
a mirror to my
future self.



Poet's Note:  Today's prompt was about the things we leave unsaid...in life, in relationships, etc.
