A paper rose

The New Guy didn’t write back.  I get it, I guess.  But I could have talked to him.  I could have helped him. I tried not to write again.  But then about a week later I saw a quote and something about it… I thought it was worth one last try.  Maybe he had calmed down?

Good morning!  
Saw this quote on Jonathan Carroll’s Facebook page… it screamed to be sent to you. 
“He folded his fear into a perfect rose. He held it out in the palm of his hand. She took it from him and put it in her hair.”
Arundhati Roy
He never wrote back.  I hate silence.  
Farewell New Guy.  Best of luck to you.
