Balm

I’m sorry.

Fire extinguisher to flame.

I’m really sorry.

Ointment to wound.

I could’ve¬†done better.

Lifting the lid off a bubbling pot.

I’m so, so very sorry.

Glue to slow-spreading crack in delicate, delicate glass.

I’m sorry too. I want to be better for you.

Gloriously soothing balm for the thorns in our words.
