Healing touch

I need somebody to touch me in a healing way
I need somebody
to touch me
in a healing way

Somebody

Somebody

to touch me –
with love

somebody
who can hold
this depth of pain

hold me
crying tears
for every woman
whose
being a woman
has ever
made her cry

Unshed grief
running out slowly
in a river
of cleansing salt
