when rocks heavy with negativity and self-hatred have fused to your skin and weigh you down to the darkest depths of your mind
when the air seems harder to breathe and your hands shake under the weight of your sadness
when your tongue sticks to the roof of your mouth with words that you wish you could throw up but latch on to the back of your throat
when your skeleton feels like paper and your heartbeat sounds fainter than it should
I will untie you from your anchors
I will hold your trembling hands until they are steady again
and I will spend my nights monitoring your heavy heart until you break the surface of the ocean of your torment and are mine once again
