It’s only you
Ever you
Who brings me close
To believing I’m
Something more than a
Promise and bones wrapped together with
Skin and whispers
It’s only you
Who keeps me
And makes me
Strong
And happy
With whom I’ve become
It’s only you
Ever you
With my heart tied
To a telephone line
I breathe
And
Release everything
That’s
Everything
To me
Because it’s only you
Ever you
Who I need
When I can’t
Make it on
My
Own.

You used great imagery to help us paint a picture when you said "promise and bones...skin and whispers." The way you formatted this poem definitely made it more effective along with the repetition "only you ever you" It flows gracefully. It was very easy to relate, I love it!

I loved this a lot! It really reminded me of my relationship with Jesus. I have been in church my whole life but just recently have I begun to follow Him with my whole heart. I love my Savior! He is my everything!
