Parched and Watered…

His arid heart

Had become lonely.

All it took were several

Drops of her love

To refresh


There’s nothing

Like the right words

To refresh a parched

and thirsty soul.

It’s like fuel

To one’s

  1. Really beautiful poem Jacqueline. “There is nothing like the right words to refresh a parched and thirsty soul.” It is really true, when you’re upset or think you’ve done something wrong or you’ve only had a bad day — the right words from the right person are “fuel” and they really just make you feel so much better and so relieved. It’s as if suddenly, everything is right.


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
