The Fortress

Hold my hand
Snake your arm
Warm and firm
Around my middle
Tuck your finger under my chin
Lifting up my head when it is down
Never believe me when I say I’m fine
Because you know I’m fine means
I’m finally broken and empty and so very very
Tired of being never enough
Look deep into my eyes again, again
Until I see me reflected
And I will press my forehead to your forehead
And together we will stand just like that
And together we can be our cathedral
And together we are a fortress
Of broken pieces knit together
Made stronger
And alone
Never again
