Favorite Quote:
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Mark Twain


Hold me
Just hold me
Please just hold me

Soothe the anxiety of my soul
Let the aches of imaginary age
And the tears of a thousand
Small sorrows
Flow unhindered through the splintered bones
Of my heart

The gathering water in my eyes
Is the product
Of frustrations ignored
And pain shuttered away
Of internal outcries snuffed

I have never asked, begged, pleaded
For your affection
For your love
For your supposed strength

Now my knees are bent

Hold me
Just hold me
Please

Hold me
