Let Us End This


When you uttered those four words,

It was an instant kick to my throat,

Rapidly piercing my heart with a rusted spear,

Breaking our conjoined trust,

Tearing down the frail world that we built,

Leaving my soul to rot.

A Tribute to Nepal – Hearts Broken by Earthquake


Straight down from my heart,
To the shaken world and to the aching hearts,
To the haunting cries heard from far away,
To the sorrowful faces that I haven’t seen,
To the broken places where my physical body couldn’t reach,
To the needy hands that I couldn’t touch,
To the shaken world and to the aching hearts,

My heart bleeds pain…
