I know

you’re broken.

I see the fracture lines

behind your eyes

I feel the seepage

leaking from the crack in your soul.

I have

needle, thread


and hope.

I’ll share.

    This is such a beautiful and meaningful piece. Such loving and encouraging words.

  3. Joel Says:

    Lovin’ the love. 🙂

  4. I like your poem. “see the fracture through your eyes” a good line. Eyes tell so much more than words.

    • lol Still looking at that line, I confess. I’m pondering “see the fracture lines in your eyes” Hmm. Which do you prefer? Nice thing about digital publishing.

      Thanks for stopping in!

      • I didn’t mean for you to change the line. I understood she “saw the fracture (of the soul, heart) through your eyes.” I prefer this line as you first shared it. Thanks.

      • It wasn’t quite right, and the change better reflects what I was visualizing: a fracture line visible when you look at the eyes- you know that slightly haunted expression? My blog poetry is always mutable.

  6. The . After the word broken… Perfect.
