Soothing Pain

A tender kiss to temple

Then roving to thine eye,

Blessing hurtful visions

With lips and quiet sigh.

 

Soothing touch on fevered brow,

Damp sweat wiped clear away,

A world of hurt inside thy mind

Stroking fingers, gently play

 

A quiet tune hummed softly,

Harmony to pain,

Cool palms on shoulders’ muscles,

Easing aches and strain.

 

Quietude and haunting mood,

Dimmed lights to quell the heat

Of angst-filled soul and searcher

Of other one to meet.

 

A world of tumultuous, tossing thoughts,

Lids closed against the image.

Send soul on journey, ether bound

Beseeching, paying homage

 

To glorious need, a heart so pure,

Seeking understanding love.

My prayers are soaring at your side,

Sent to one above.

    1. I’m glad you can relate. It can be hit and miss at times with poetry, thinking you’ve expressed something and then someone goes, ‘What?’ And it’s back to the drawing board! Bless you too. x
