not what I expected

not what I expected by Teri H Hoover

Friends are like warm sweaters of the softest yarn.

They wind 'round your core, covering your bones.

It is in their leaving, you see what you are made of.

Letters, hidden in short emails, we drift in and out.

But even after careful stitches, plum colored and tender,
the scar of loss remains.

I stop myself from these thoughts – and shovel them away.
'Tis not what I expected to say.
