Your gaze bores into mine
Something stirs within
I can feel around me the walls that are falling
Your touch
Cools me down
A hug from you
Eases my panic
Why is this happening now?
Why am I breaking?
Faint droplets are streaming down my cheeks.
Nothing surrounds me now
My fears aren't hiding.
Don't cry, don't cry.
A voice screams inside
But it's too late
The ties that were bound to me.
Are long gone.
I'm weak.
But you look at me and tell me I'm strong.
A soft caress
Captured lips.
Then your shoulder is welcoming me.
Sobbing ensures
And now I'm healing.
