What matters ?

“No melodramatic Monday morning wish this week ?”, he asked me , sounding shocked.
I send these Monday morning messages to some of my friends every week. Though he is never the recipient of those , he does check my phone to read the message I know.
“It does not make a difference to anyone”I responded lightheartedly , trying best to hide my disappointment of my own statement.
“It matters to many. It matters to me the most to know you have not given up on doing something so good and positive in life” , he replied , looking kindly into my eyes that a minute before were full of doubt.

Giving up

The twisted hallways,
that her thoughts made
were sources of illness,
she knew;
Miracles ceased to happen
with the last of his words,
echoing within gestures
she later saw;
Singing of bleak hopes
she hands her dreams
to the light that follows
her destiny;
Delivering justice to all
but none to carry her flame
she cries hard and gives up
at his grave.
