He Looks So Broken

By: Vanessa Sgroi

I watch him when he's not looking. I watch him when he's sleeping too. I wonder if he knows, but if he does, he never says anything. He looks so…broken…in those unguarded moments. Kind of like a jigsaw puzzle with a few critical pieces missing.

I want to ask him what happened during the last four months but the words stick in my throat like sharp, jagged glass. I fear they'll unintentionally wound as easily as our weapons.

No doubt one of these days, the piercing words will erupt.

For now, I'll let it be. And remain watchful and wary.
