I fold myself close to my heart.
Holding onto the only thing left that I can,
gripping it tightly as to not lose any of it.
The only thing that I can trust.
The only thing that is close enough to me to grab.
Everything else is so far away,
just out of reach.
But I hold one thing close,
the words that saved my life,
the tears of my friends.
I hold onto their memories,
their words,
and tears,
so I don’t lose everything.

my insperation for this was when a friend of mine helpped me out of some problems i had with myself. i wrote it as i was recovering and i felt like i lost everythng, but i had her words and tears to inspire me to get better.
