"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia." ~E.L. Doctorow


They are the hands
with the curved lines
that sweep the locks of curls
away from my eyes

They are the hands
that gently brush my back
reminding me
that I am safe, that I am home

They are the hands
that I held in mine
with the tough skin
near the thumb

They were the hands
that caressed my face
said everything would be okay.
When it wasn’t.

They were the hands
that I so long to hold
that I would take back
in the beat of a heart.

OMG! I love this! I love drawing hands and this capture every aspect of things most people don't think of when they think of hands! This was just wonderfully written! Write on!
