I hold you
In the deepest, darkest corners of my mind
Like everything I have lost, never again to find
In memories of the black night, of those shadows I lived
I hear you in the moonlight, in the white painted glyphs
In aching, on bruised nerve endings, I pressed and carved your name
Again and again, I called, but no news of you came
I learnt to forget your face, i pushed my eyeballs in
I tried to stop breathing, forget that scent, your skin
I loved you more than salt, the sea, more than Hell could love sin.
I hold you
In the cracks of my heart, where no light will enter
In those lonely, lonely nights, where no peace will not falter
I hold you in everyone, everything I left behind
In every cut and scar that left no limb unlined
I hold you in the deepest, darkest corners of my mind
I hold you in every scalding tear in endless rains
Oh I still hold you…
I hold you in pain.
What matters, in the end, is how well you walk through the fire
No matter how long ago, yesterday, last year, or a lifetime ago. There was a fire.
It burned. It scalded, and it hurt.
And you walked through it.
You built yourself from the ashes, you did.
You walked through the fire to the other side.
And you’re just fine. ❤
Hugs and sunshine,
