Nothing Ever Spoken

nothing ever spoken

I offended someone today. 

Not you,

because you weren’t there. 

And not the person who,


let me know of my offense. 

The person who told me that I had offended someone. 


I’m insensitive. 


more than sometimes,

I just cover it well with most people. 


I let it slip. 

And this time,

I almost let it slip to cause someone to fall. 

I didn’t want to. 

I spoke,


or so I thought. 

But nothing ever spoken is truly random,

is it?

I offended someone today. 

They just didn’t know it,

but I do,


Not you,

because they weren’t there. 

But someone was,

who cared.
