calloused.

i did not believe it.
such a thing could not have been committed
by a human being.
this act of hurtful behavior,
of breaking my confidence…
how can any of this be?
i wanted to have faith
in the rest of the world’s ability
to be kinder,
more compassionate.

but after years of service
to relationships that no longer demonstrated purpose,
i was convinced
that event the softest of touches
are calloused by vengeance.
