Fill us

Fill us with humanity,
between the cracks of our facade,
down where what is left of love
hides its face in fear of pain.
Fill our hearts and let us feel
what links us all as one again.

— Michele Brenton


  1. What a pithy comment on the human condition! Lovely.

  2. This poem draws me back repeatedly, and each time seems all the more satisfying.
