Tears streaming down my face

I begin yelling at him about all the pain

That everyone lied about

It never

Went away.

He takes my hand

“Yes, I feel it.”


Standing outside of a forest

I scream at everyone driving by

Wondering why they are not helping

Fight this terrible war

Nobody can see

But to me it is a terrible scene

He takes my hand

“Yes, I see it.”


Within the warmth of him

There is no pain

No wars

Just peace




Until one day

I take his hand

“I don’t see it anymore.”
