Where is the Line?

Where is the line

for when I can

or cannot

reach out?

Where is the line

between keeping you informed,

and burdening your time apart?

Is the line

a realization of what’s impacted who I am

and wanting to share with you?

Overwhelming feelings

of how badly I want to be with you

and the ends of the earth to which I’d go?

The diagnosis of cancer

in a family member

unsure of how to respond

due to the lack of clarity

and severity?

Or are none of these

within reason?

I guess if I am questioning

where these fall

in the line of communication

I must assume

to keep it silent.
