Day 7: Sanctuary

He was disturbed that night

He was unhappy with the decision he was about to make

The fact that he was drunk, did not in the least, help his case

He would ponder a lot before he uttered any word

Either of malice or of praise.


He didn’t show it or ask for it

All he needed was an open, receptive, listening ear

It was like one of those time sensitive phenomena

If you weren’t there then, you’d miss it

Another occurrence of his vulnerability would probably take a few decades


She was there just like a good friend should,

She tried convincing him

To change his made up mind.

They were great friends, comrades

A sanctuary  to each other in difficult times.
