No Apologies

The words surprise her. A shiver trembles over her body.

A white sheet of paper with blue ink. Letters carefully aligned. “I’s” dotted. Innocuous.

The words tell her nothing. No apologies. No tears. No recriminations. No emotion.

The deed is done. No undos. No undeletes.

Just a blank space where once life existed.
