Fracture Lines

Fracture lines.

I can see them ever so clearly,

Not on the glass pane though…

The pane is new.


Fracture lines

I see them in your eyes.

Your wonderfully expressive dark dark eyes.

Are now besieged

With doubt, fear and worry.


I do not talk to you,


But I will sit down and hold your trembling hands steady.

I will tell you that I sense,

Even feel your pain and suffering.


I really really hope

That if i stay long enough.

you will be able to see the fracture lines

In my eyes also.
