Hugging your struggle,
Hiding your sorrow like a friend who gives you
All you need to survive,
You won’t need your will again.
You surrendered a long time ago.
I put four hooks through my body for you,
I suspended our love from high above
till it broke my back for you.
I chose the way of pain, I walked and bled for you.
I always feel your shame.
I long for you
I’m vulnerable but no one knows that about me
Everyday I smile and everyday I’m accepted.
I’ve fallen but no one knows that about me.
I wait. I’m still waiting.
Taut young skin stretched
Silent over his inexperience the
Pain never surfaces but
Is only captured in the eyes
