Take this day away from me
turn it into
your tomorrow.

I’m tangled so tight
I can’t
cut myself free.

I lost my way.
Somehow, a blessing,
we walked the same dark path
into one another’s
waiting embrace.

Strip me bare
take the fight away
from me
shake it
from my grasp.

Your body a shield
holding me down so
I won’t run away, holding me
together so I don’t break
into pieces.

You should know:
when you found me
in a broken state,
loved me back to whole,
you healed my heart
for someone else.
