You Come To Me – Poetry

You come to me gushing words tumble off tongue as blood from wounds. Tears cascade, rolling with the words sobbed out. You come to me for warmth. I take your sorrow and smother it in my bosom and let you melt into my heart. You come to me for tending as I wrap your wounds... Continue Reading →
