The Most Despaired Emily
thebroadset

I never met Emily
 1
but through the door
 2
she described herself to me.
 3
Her despair well noted,
 4
though, in her voice
 5
and my voice
 6
I could have made her smile -
 7
for one day a doctor asked me how I reacted to the lose of my parents.
 8
to I responded as if I were someone in which sadness settled.
 9
 
 
I am all
 10
the most happy water
 11
in which to cleanse
 12
the most despaired Emily  -
