Unraveled Stitches

Today I was angry. My good friend and one of the nicest, most considerate people I have had the pleasure to know was attacked online. They had stated an honest opinion that hurt no one, but it didn’t matter. People don’t always consider their actions or words used on the internet. But they should. People are real and they feel pain. I’d like you to consider this before insulting someone’s intellect, abilities, or appearance online or in person. Thank you.

Unraveled Stitches

we can land on a comet
but we can’t dance
unraveled stitches off
an open wound or

bleed indulgence into
good intentions…

dreams aren’t satisfied
kindness isn’t vogue
and we aren’t real
enough to feel.
