Pain is not cumulative
Mine does not add to yours
Yours does not add to mine
I can feel your pain as it resonates with mine
Like matched tuning forks struck simultaneously

Vibrating in sync
Emotions ebbing and flowing
Tears leaking then drying
Hands clasping, unclasping

We talk
We share
We feel
Our minds touch for a moment
We connect and are better, stronger

Commerce of the most intimate
With laughter, sighs, voices raised
We exchange little pieces of ourselves
Cherishing the bits that are true and honest

Skeptical about the questionable bits
Hopeful of the bits I cherish
Wondering if I said to much
If my lack of trust betrayed me

Can we really know each other?
Can I really understand?
Can I really feel your pain?
Can I really know your heart?

I will try because I care

What a wonderful poem. And the message is so appropriate: I can't promise I can fix anything, but I do promise you I care. Very cool indeed.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

strength is cumulative, mine adds to yours, yours adds to mine and we offer it to each other because we care.

I appreciate your clear view and expression of the communal strength displayed on MS.

I'm a freeman now, his authority's dead
no pain monger lies in my comfortable bed!
