negative space

in the sweetest voice,
i said the most bone cold thing
like so many times, i didn’t plan it through
my honest assessment just fell loose
a response i didn’t have to think about
but seeing your reaction led to regret all the same
it was something i meant, at the time
i knew i hit a nerve though, and hurt your feelings
it wasn’t nice to say but it was true all the same.
when i think about what words you’ll take
i know those will fall ahead of what few remain.
