Hands

This is an ode to my hands
for being gentle,
being soft, being steady,
being strong.
For holding onto yours
even when your fingers were slipping.

(Your fingers were always slipping.)
(I should’ve known you’d fall.)

This is an ode to my hands –
for letting yours go
when they had to.

Comment
by Theresa Vogrin

Theresa Vogrin is a 24-year-old Austrian writer, living in Guildford (United Kingdom) and Graz (Austria).
Growing up, books were her best friends and so it came naturally to her to write her own stories. At the age of thirteen her love for writing was born and soon after that, she discovered the beauty of the English language.
In her work, Theresa discusses a wide range of themes such as love, life, relationships and distance.
Being a passionate person herself, she is very good at capturing emotions with her unique way with words. Through her poetry she tries to figure out how people work, why they do what they do and how she can make them feel something - anything - with just her words.
Theresa published her first poetry book "Bitter-Sweet" in July 2018.
