A Touch of Healing

CC: “complaint”

HPI:
“Fifteen minutes is all that they could spare
Clinical touch, a sacred tradition
They did not touch me. Did they even care?

For years I have worked up the trust to share
To be in this vulnerable position
Fifteen minutes is all that they could spare

Sleepless nights, I have endured this nightmare
A ritual that deepens our connection
They did not touch me. Did they even care?

My pain runs deep, I can no longer bare
The stethoscope, they could use to listen
Fifteen minutes is all that they could spare

I have lost all hope that I will repair
No hope to overcome this condition
They did not touch me. Did they even care?

Every night this pain is in my prayers
The answer cannot be this physician
Fifteen minutes is all that they could spare
They did not touch me. Did they even care?”
