How can I ?


How can I…


Feel the fathomless pit

of your pain,

the tendrils that throttle-

muting your voice

to a ghost of your scream?


How can I…


View the misty horizon

behind your tears,

the fears which squint-

blinding your vision

to a mirage of your dream?


How can I…


Touch the raw wound

that never seems to heal,

the scab keeps peeling off-

exposing your soul

now handcuffed in solitary?


How can I…


Tell you that the sun still shines

after the storm of yesterday,

that today will soon become-

your tomorrow and will present you

with ribbon wrapped choices ?


How can I take your hand-

mark your footprints in the sand…
