Elana Pappoff – Watching


He Watches;

A never blinking eye.

Stares deep within her, through her.

He feels her fatigue, responds.

Catches her gaze, responds.

He is for her, because of her, apart from her.

A constant attendant;

Never Touching.

He Watches,

And he listens.

She brushes sunlight through her hair.

He savors the moment;

“What is it to feel the sunlight?”

It dances on her skin.

He Watches,

And he listens,

And he wants.

“What is it to feel the sunlight?”

Silver and gold strands,

She brushes sunlight through her hair.

She feels fatigue,

Hardly moves.

He Watches

And He Wants.

“What is it to feel the sunlight?”

To ‘feel’ light at all?

He Watches,

And He Wants.

Finally reaches, approaching her frame.

Her warm skin shudders,

Wires cross and spark;

He feels life, through her.

She’s timid; what to feel,

When pain is gone.
