Just a Second

“Just a second”, she said.
Taking an eternity to speak.

“What do you read”, she asked.
“Words that can heal”, I retroted.

From then and the time I kissed her,
She said ‘just a second’ thrice.

I got to know about the boogie man,
That forbids her from talking.

So, when my bus stop came,
I kissed her goodbye and
Said, “It is OKAY”
“It is Okay to have depression.”

– Emily Parker
