Words Are All I Have

Your deep guttural voice
Sets each cell ablaze;
Your varied intonations
Evoke myriad passions within;
But the ecstasy
Soon fades away,
As I hear a crack
In your sobbing voice
Lifting all the veils
Revealing your bruised soul beneath.


I reach out to you
With my arms flung wide,
Wanting to take you in my embrace
And provide a healing touch
—To caress fear out of your tender soul
To wipe the dewdrops from your teary eyes
To console your aching heart—
But soon I realize that the distance between us
Is too great to traverse in space
So I have to make do with poor words.
