You turn a phrase

like a key in a lock

I understand.


You read my face

from beginning to end

I believe.


You squeeze my hand

for more than a minute

I trust you now.

Scharlie Meeuws
in very few words you tell a whole story....a story of
communication and believing....that is how we humans learn to grow

I enjoyed this poem. Do that, and this happens; cause and effect.

Very well written
I like the three first lines
very much
Thanks for sharing

The first two lines describe your writing far better than anything I could say.
