Best Poem of Betty Jo Hilger

Timid Dialogues…

Certain themes of conversation are anathema
They never should be broached
Though opinions may be accurate
the consequence is death

Of relationships
Of peace
Of hopes
Of dreams
Of sanity

Oft’ begun in innocence, with thoughts to rationale
Unforeseen, the outcome
weighs a heart to bow
forced into a corner

Blackened
Helpless
Desperate
Inconsolable
Wretched

In assessment of his triggers she is flawless
when signals are conveyed
accumulating data, measuring the risk
but she cannot read his mind ...

Terrified…

Have you ever watched a rabbit when it knows it has been seen…
When the danger bells are sounding with alarm…
When he stops within that instant, and he hopes to disappear
Freezing, in that moment, locked within his fear

Or that deer caught in the headlights look, fleeing through his eyes
When arrested there in time he cannot breathe
Staring, yet unseeing, undetectable to self
His heart in shredded terror on his sleeve
