The Pulse of Pain

BY VALENTYNA HOLLOWAY

Silent words whispered
from knowing eyes, the
unspoken gift of a shared
language communicated
by empathic thoughts.
(If I could, I would heal you,
your pain is mine.)
There are no expressions
to encompass what lies
behind those orbs of sapphire.
Just music that drops
through my mind.
The soundtrack of a locked gaze
overpowering the cacophony
of the heartbeat fuelled machines.
