Tear drops

trace your

cheek bones

almost languid

in their flow


Whisper soft

my hand reaches out

delicately wipes

errant tears away

caressing wet paths

they have followed


Hand sliding slowly

down your breastbone

to rest on

your beating heart

Caged, not free

I hear its lonesome song


We breathe in time

close my eyes

silently communicate

through gentle touch

Deep longing to ease

your heart’s

rough edges

Heal pain

ease burdens

And find

that your tears

have become mine




  1. As a student of describing such deep emotions as these, I am in love with this of course. Always fascinated how feelings can be translated without words or dialog but through the power of human body language and tender empathic feeling. Well done, Christine.
