Momentary Pause

Those fingers come to rescue when emotions churn uncontrollably

Nails willing to grow and persistently claw along the slippery surfaces

Save every little feeling from falling off the edge of jagged precipice

From the rapid decline that will journey to the unknown abysses

Fingers intercept the melancholic thoughts with extreme dexterity

When memories sting, the swollen heart reminisces in relentless pain

First attempt to chronicle the episodes may resemble haphazard lines

Deep indentations create furrows and impressions in multiple layers

Blank pages conjure the benevolence to absorb the last drop

Fingers can finally relax and rest over the heart to provide solace

Pen runs dry and lay there after the deep pause in exhaustion

It is a momentary relief before the echoes randomly pursue again
