“Save Me”

“Save me”
Crying out
“Save me”
Clawing at the edges
“Save me”
Can’t pull yourself up

“I can’t do this on my own
Not anymore”
You yell this in his face
As he gently beckons
Just let go

Afraid of heights
Pulling yourself to the top of the pit
Will not look back at what you’re climbing from
Begging
“Save me”
Just let go

Beneath you
Right beneath you
Are arms poised and ready
Waiting for you to just let go
So they can catch you

“Save me”
Crying out
As you pull away from salvation
Not realizing you are saved
If you’d just let go

No longer waiting
No longer striving in fear
“Save me”
Words that are only memories to your lips
Just let go
You are safe

Somber

Somber
We sit in silence
As a quiet trembling passes through us
Knowing there is nothing to be said
Aching for something we never knew we lost
Asking for silent contemplation
Hiding in plain sight

I had never watched a grown man break before
Had never seen someone mirror my heart so
This soul has seen things
There are stories to be told

Wondering if it is time to share my own story
A longing for unknown community
Secrets ready to be revealed
Is this peace within me due to my chaos being absorbed?
Yet my heart still goes out to you
Are you ready to listen?

Whispers will penetrate a dark place
There is no need to be afraid anymore
Feel what you need to
A gentle giant
You were created
