Eggshell Ballet

24 Feb

I laid an egg today.

My words came out before editing.

The subject ill timed.

The words ill phrased.

If we argued I would cry.

To admit the piece of truth in my words would hurt their pride.

And so we dance, tiptoeing around the house, around each other,

around the fragments that fell with my words.

In a few days, Time will sweep away the pain, and the awkwardness will fade.

For now, though, we will remain

in our egg shell ballet.

      Yeah…stuck my foot in my mouth in a big way yesterday. I think I was wearing a stiletto heal at the time. While writing in my journal about it this popped out.
