Hands Entwined

Hands Entwined

A Poem by MsJewel
"

a collaboration with my best friend and favorite poet Trace

"

    “A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world,”  Leo Buscaglia

                                       

 

 

He has never touched my hand

or heard a sigh slip from my lips

as I lay my head on his chest

warmed…

                                                                by a heartbeat familiar

 

He has never traced the curve of my face

or the pink of my lips

Yet, he has tasted my tears

             never dismissing them

          only brushing them away

‘til there is nothing left

                                                                              but to smile

 

No,

                                 he has never touched my hand

 

                                Still,

it fits perfectly in mine


                                      

 

She has never touched my hand

or felt my whisper in her ear

                                  as I held her close

                                                on a sultry summer evening

 

She has never felt the strength of my arms

or the beat of my heart

that knows no bounds or borders

Yet, knows those same feelings exist

                                                           if only a heartbeat away

 

No,

she has never touched my hand,

but my heart…           

yes,     

                                hearts have touched

 

                                Like the gentle feel of

our hands entwined

Is this about abortion in some way? I might just be projecting of course but I couldn't stop thinking about that as I read this. It's objectively well written as usual, you write very pretty. "heard a sigh slip from my lips.." that's fancy good wordsmithing.

It's been a while since I've read any collaborations, but I've always loved yours. Your poetry is always filled with such love and intense feelings. This is beautiful.

Thank you for your kind words :) Julie
dear poets... tears are meant to be gathered by a gentle friend... someone who knows where longing lives. The touch of a raindrop
may soothe the soul of a rose with feelings. truly, Pat

It is always a treat when you visit my page Pat. Thank you my dear friend. Hugs, Julie
Silky smooth, you two, utterly wonderful intricacy of simple intimacy... This was tragic, yet burned my soul with warmth at the same time... Entwined, I am, in the hands of wonderful writers... Beautifully penned...

For a collab to be good. It has got to have the feel of one writer. This is perfect. I take it you have both done a few together.
