Fragile Heart


This is something I wrote a Long time ago.   The person I wrote it for will recognize it immediately.  I think it’s some of my best work.

I have been working to promote my work a little more lately and came across this website called Festival For Poetry on WordPress.   So I submitted my poem.  If you would like to see it, you can find it here:  https://festivalforpoetry.com/2017/06/13/read-poetry-fragile-heart-by-penny-wilson/ 

I hope you enjoy it!

-Always, PennyLane

Gently


sad

I’m here, right here.  Don’t you see?

If I reach out, I’m too clingy.

To dare say “I need”; too easy.

Your eyes, your touch, tell me yes.

Why can’t you speak?

That fragility is in all of us.

I want to be safe too.

Reach out your hand.

Ever so gently, I’ll hold it close.
