"the chord was broken"

What of her terror, her fears,
Would you not know them?
Was your pain less than hers?
Could you not share yours to lessen hers and in giving receive as well?
Comfort was sorely needed, but it was not in you
For your own turmoil was more than you could bear
As the chasm widened you heard her pleas and ignored them
Turned away so you could not see her tears or feel her pain
The chord was broken, and the fight within her began
It was hers alone!
c 1996
