Two Strangers

He is sweet and understanding
As of now
I only know his voice
I’ve needed to hear kindness directed at me
Safe enough to hang up
There is no possibility of physical harm
That’s always on a woman’s mind
I’m on one end of California
He’s on the other end
He likes the sound of my voice
I like the sound of his intentions
Just two strangers hearing each other out
Maybe we make up the world we live in
Maybe we share the truth
Two strangers listen in
Calm and relieved
To meet someone who can speak and isn’t afraid of silence
