Compassion

I recently posted this one Medium: Compassion

take notice of pain
it comes in all kinds of ways
soulful and sadful
spiritually obscure
physically in malaise

hold close the hurting
if not in arms try in hearts
you may not know what
kind of aching may be felt
trust that caring matters more

cries may not have tears
anguish manifests diverse
not for us to judge
just the same-judgment will come
and is often in telling

pull the chains from souls
release viral compassion
secrets can be held
truly, passions can be shared
without conditions all known

Padded – An Acrostic

Placing the filling in the pouch, she holds it in the palm of her hand.

Asking if it feels natural to her friend, she hands it over to the waiting woman.

Doubts run through her mind as she worries that this tender moment will cause her friend dismay.

Delighted with the weight and texture, her friend nods approval with a big smile.

Elated on one side of her emotions, saddened on the other, less seen, side of her emotions, she grins and moves in for a hug.

Dejected since the operation, she held her friend, gently at first before tightly gathering her close, knowing that only a true friend would understand and allow her heart to fill, true friendship is never padded with false intentions.
