Sane

I held you last night and you cried

You didn’t speak

You didn’t even utter noise

You shook in my arms and pleaded with your tears

And I could do nothing

For I have never faced your fears

Why with someone so fragile

Would the world break you

What did you do to be such a victim

What can I do to protect you

Your hands bigger than mine

And yet my heart bigger than yours

Where does all the love go

When no embraces are made

I stroked your head and sang you a lullaby

Voice course and choppy for I was tearing

And while I sang I wished to god

Help me find strength to stay sane

For you, for me

And everything that could be

Poetry
