Just a sentence – that’s all it takes sometimes.
Like a fort battening down for battle, the walls come up.
All’s well, but in a few quick words, all’s well no longer.
Does it really matter? Does it make sense to care?
Is now the time to stop, to quit?
The loss generated might not mean much.
The time has been spent, and life is short.
Apology isn’t the only option.
