You, me and ...... maybe you

Your hands trace the contours

I smile

You softly let your fingers scroll

on my warm skin

I smell green apples

what is it?

Your perfume or incense?

In the quiet

I can hear your heartbeat

and you can touch mine.

Each scar, each mark,

has a tale to tell!

you gently brush

a stray strand of hair

from my face

tuck it behind my ear

and trace

a gushing stream of cold water

down my neck,

I release my stiff shoulders

my breast bone loosens

the binoculars of my heart

read every line in your palm!

In a small salon

two women

share their stories

without a word

and give each other

the gift of empathy.

Zalatwic #NewNormal #A2Z



to get done any how 

Everyone staggering to help

Staggering struggling

Fighting, wanting

defeating, receding


nobody knows the right way

everyone just clawing their way

through this wasteland

Ya'aburnee #NewNormal #A2Z


A way to declare your hope that your loved one will outlive you because of how unbearable it would be to live without them.

Death and mourning 

so much grief 


to see a loved one depart

is tearing us all apart 

this is not the world we wished

this is not .....

may nobody lose a loved one 

may nobody bear this pain alone.
