hold me

hold me
she said

hold me
she begged

let me rest
in the warmth
i feel in your hands

hold me in that way
that makes everything ok

the numbness in my bones
the war in my head

the consuming fear
of dying alone

hold me
and enfold
all i cannot face

be my sun
my pillar
my solace

thaw my icy walls
and soothe
my blazing tides

i am lost
without the rudder
of your eyes

so hold me
my darling
hold me

while i make believe
i own you
