Sorry


Sorry
Sorry is not a phrase we utter.  We communicate.
Some of the most hurtful eviserating words can be can be flung like shrapnel, blood pooling on the floor, the soul tattered. Sorry is never said.
The wounded continues their respective day with arterial blood hemorrhaging,  leaving the victim listless.  Their day in ruins about their feet.
An email with a token or a phone call with an offer appears. A choice has to be made. Accept the gesture or ignore.
To accept the proffered gesture is to accept the unspoken apology.
Ignore the gesture, the onus of difficulty, intractablity, over-sensitivity are the lables tatooed for all too see.  Damned either way.
The wrong has been transferred because the perpetrator has communicated.  The victim left holding the bag, bleeding to death.

About Leila

I hail from the East and view the world as my playground. I'm opinionated. My dog is my co-pilot, but my cat navigates better. I'm only limited by my imagination. While there are terrible things that happen in the world I am responsible for making good things happen where I live, and that affects the world at large making it a better place.
