How can I ?

footprints

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…
