Soothing Touch:

Drawing in a shallow breath

Watching as the sky falls

And the rain turns to

Tears upon each face

Our faces, upturned

Watching each other weep

Pain seeping out

Down each face

Crying out, only to be heard

We part ways, my heart in

My chest aching, yearning for


Yet she finds balm

A soothing touch

To cool this burn

To salve this ache

Let me not lose this touch

Let me give up everything for it
