Dear sister, take my hand


 I will tend to your wound


 A misguided shaft


Recklessly released


  Has caused injury


The wound festers

 Trails of tears


Are testimony 


To suffering

Your cries echo across borders


 Yet he refuses to listen


Or ease the burden


 Of Cupid's arrow


Gone astray

Sound of a true frienship, which often surpasses blood relations no matter haw far apart. Grand finale with a powerful invitation.

Hope all is good.

Barbara   This is a fascinating description of emotional ties we make and break too easily; someone always seems to be on the "receiving" end of of the emotional upheaval.

               Poignant work.

Wow.  You have shared a powerful set of words describing the damage that can result from a careless partner in a relationship. But the beauty of your response introduces the us to the nature of a truly unconditional love... which, once again, tells us who you are.  Great write.

such a tender acknowledgement of the pain felt by one so close to you - empathy and understanding permeate these fine words.

Well done, Barbara.  I feel your deep need to ease your sister's pain.  Would that we had that  power more often.

The pain expressed for your sister here is palpable, and the pain she is experiencing is outlined to the point that anyone reading will be able to feel it!  Your verbal description is astounding and this write reminds me of how lucky and blessed one is to have someone like you in their corner. Thank you for always being the loving and caring person you are!

Love you, my sister of heart....You're one in a million!
