Monday Musings: Interruption – Reprieve

Interruption – Reprieve

Tears streaking my face,

I look at you.

Why are you so kind?

I wish I knew.

 

Wiping away my tears,

Please don’t…

You smile at me.

I can’t… Or I won’t.

 

You pull me close.

I think I can breathe.

Just hold me, for tonight?

You are such a relief.

 

You don’t let go.

I can’t stop crying.

When was I held like this last?

I thought the world was ending.

 

Maybe it’s just the beginning.
