Small Stone # 6

Hearing is failing.
I couldn’t hear her.
Mortified, embarrassed
ashamed, feeling
deeply separate;
hot tears fell
as I shared
with a friend.

I’m projecting fear…

  1. Ugh. Know this feeling. Awful. Well described though here. k.


  2. what an interesting verse….the hearing is failing…to lose any sense would be hard….my mom really struggled with hearing loss and not wanting to get an aide….


    • It is hard. I never quite understand those who prefer not to try a hearing aid. I know they can be costly but the alternative is no fun.


  3. Such a sad thing. They say deafness presents the biggest challenge to feeling connection. Will illustrated, Gayle.


  4. Oh, this is powerful.


  5. sometimes sharing is hard


  6. Little confessions. That’s what these feel like, Gayle…
