Hiding In Your Pencil Case
Underneath your hand I felt a warm embrace.
Not too strong and meaningful all the same.
Something about your warmth made me smile.
Even though the tragic tales you kept in a file.
You still held me close and never let me out of sight.
With me we went to other realms even in fright.
So pain tried to reach, but I never fell.
Together we formed an unbreakable shell.
So when you said "No one was there, no one had ever cared."
You snapped my heart, as your best friend.
A pencil, I may be, but still you were always with me.
