she holds your hand
feels a rush of sadness
running through disheveled veins
tears fall on silent cries
of anguish
pain courses through
in electrictified volts
she can't let go
even if she wants to
she must ride it out
let it out
take it in whatever form comes
falling to pieces
in pieces
faces streaked
hearts racing
in unison
she remains silent
holding on to the fury
of sadness
if only to relieve
to take it
pull it out of an anguished
in some way to heal

it is a perplexing
for some to understand
her nature to heal
to feel them so deeply
that she can't help but
be a mirror of their pain
to be that ocean for them
to drown in
and come out fresher
more in tune
to who they are
what they want
to be so seen
it becomes a demand
🫴 😌

Author's Note
To be so intimately in tune with another being is such an extraordinary thing ✨️  I don't know why I was given this "gift" but if it helps just one person ..
