I learned you without my hands,
in the dark, by listening to your breathing,
by making friends with your ghosts.

Unaware of the
terrible complications of being tough,
you surround yourself with silence and walls.

But you held my hand once,
you tied my shoelaces once.
I know you have a heart.

I've seen it once, for thirty seconds.


  1. I think it is in those smallest of moments that we realize just how human we really are. Also, some of the greatest and most memorable moments happen in the blink of an eye. Nice poem Kenia! :)

    P.S. What happened to your Prehistor post? I tried to read it, but it popped up saying the post couldn't be found.

  2. the first verse, third line, is truer than the sky is blue ~
