For A Friend

The worst pain is
   the invisible kind
   the kind that doesn’t leave scars
   the bruises that don’t blacken
   the wounds that don’t bleed
   the heart left in ashes and char
Don’t suffer in silence
Don’t hide in the crowd
Don’t dam up the tears which would be
Please, speak.
I’ll listen.
And together we’ll wait as your
unseen brokenness heals
~Esther Davis, 2018
