touch-points of return

again you
have returned –
a bruised leaf,

not quite a flower
but just as beautiful
in certain lights –

at these touch-points
of return, I don’t know
what you want from me

– comfort, kindness,
a soft-word-caress;
you seek safety, solace –

but there are times
when even I
have nothing to give
