That Look That Rest On Your Collar Bones

That look
of yours
that wearily
slides down
from the corners 
of your eyes
that come to
rest on your collar bones
How I wish
I could
take the
sadness away
wipe out those years
smooth out the
hardship I see awake under it all
what lays
in your dark circles
I know
I have walked under life too
and it
keeps pouring
upon us
like tears.

A deeply felt desire to heal. A poem that expresses the intense feeling of helplessness that eats our souls when we can not help one we love.. A poet's dream, a lover's lament and a sad echo into a dark pit.... Great poem my friend! A super 7 from me...

Many thank you's . This is written for someone I feel strongly for, that has experienced more hardship than anyone I know. Life put it's marks on us, stamps us and paints us. All we can is to grab that someone's hands and keep walking........
