, ,

She closes her eyes
For the pain
To go away

But it never does
And so
She just keeps

Filling her up
Until pain
Is all she
Remembers having

She feels
So alone
Living in a world
Just her and her pain

But I take her hand
Gently in mine
And whisper
Into her ear

You’re not alone
Open your eyes
And let me share
Your ache

My shoulders
Are strong
Let’s walk
Through this dark
Until it’s passed
