My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Photo Challenge #125


When he reached out to take her hand,

She knew it was the start

Of his journey to her heart:

Their worlds collided,

Hands touched,

Sculpting her skin

With fingertips

And his lips

Reading each scar,

Each line on her palm;

Smoothing cracks

And callouses,

Healing the broken

Heart in her open
