  • I call to you through your wall of despair and hope that, like Jericho, it will fall.
    You raise your head slightly and our eyes meet,
    and for a second, I recognise you.
    I chatter and act the fool,
    giving you time to put on your battle dress.
    You are ready now to face the day
    and pretend that you find it bearable.

    I truly believed that Love could heal anything.
