A Hug Returned

Jake Isaacson

Itīs been a month
Since your ice cold message
"Do not contact me again."

I honored your request
Choked on words unsaid.

Now there you stand, across the room.
Dare I say hello? Or walk away?

You smile and greet me as a friend
A hug returned does what words could not
Washes bitterness away.
