Must remain strong.

i could hear the
hurt
in her voice –
it was shaky
it trembled
there was the ghost of tears
behind her every words.

i listened and felt
my heart twist
on itself;
i forced the words
out from my ears
to take away the pain.

i know of the hurt
i know of the fear
i must remain strong
for her more than for me.
