my dear friend gave me three words as a writing prompt: hear, heart & ear. this is what those words and her hard work overseas inspired.

what they possess
(c) 2017 by margaux delotte-bennett

they carry their hearts in knarled fingers
some broken & reset
all chapped

these hearts are often heavy
with war & fear

I stand near to hear their woes
of heartbreak & disbelief
survival hard won
oft by chance

my ears burn with what they
can not bring themselves
to confess
held captive in the hope
that this place
will allow them to feel
