JUDITH ANNE CULPEPPER, M.D.
I cringe at the sight of your blood
Because it is the color of my own.
We are like strings tuned to the same note,
So that I resonate to your cry of pain.
Stop hurting me with your hurt, I implore you.
I'm fragile like a delicate crystal glass:
If you scream I may shatter.
