Unbroken (a poem)

Inspired by the ‘Broken’ episode of House

‘I’m sick of life being interesting.’
Her sigh of resignation
reverberated throughout the tiny space
as she bowed her head
and closed her eyes

‘When I came here, I was happy—now I’m not.’
Her eyes filled with tears
her breath stuttered
The room grew thick with the silence
of disappointment

A glimmer of hope soon came
in the form of a warm embrace—
but he was the one she was saving
Redemption sometimes comes
from unexpected places
