Strong he was. Elegant he was. Beautiful he was. Wise he was. Calm he was.
But no one ever knew… like a glass he was. No one ever knew… how fragile he was.
A day it was. Normal it was. But silence before the storm it was.
Painful it was. Scary it was. Sad it was. Heartbreaking it was…Literally… it was…
Glass it was. Painful it was. Chipped it was. Sacred it was. Helpless it was.
More than that….
Helpless was I. Ignorant was I. No help was I. Burden was I.
Chipped glass smiled. Fortunate it was. Heartbreaking it was.
“At least you were there”, he said. Heart squeezing it was. Guilt it was. Nothing but pain it was…

For 26th June which killed a little of all of us…. May that day never come again… Nightmare it was…
