I’ll just hold you until it all goes away.
The bad. The tears.
I’ll hold your head against mine in the hopes,
That if I hold it tight enough, I can fix it all.
As your tears soak my shirt,
I can feel your heart beating against mine,
Swiftly. Trying to make up for the pain between your breaths.
I would wish anything on myself so you can be healed in this moment.
But for now I’ll just hold you in my arms.
Written for someone whom I very much wish I could be holding in this moment.
