Thinks & Inks

By @astrid_hartman


She called,

It was almost midnight


This is not how I expected 2017 to begin


With everyone else asleep,

I walked into the kitchen and 

I answered…


I answered because she needed me,

Even though she was hundreds of miles away 

Through the phone lines, 

I was able to help untangle her thoughts

And try 

To make sense of the situation


I reached out,

Hugging her with my words
