“Everything to do, and none of it done
Chaos surrounds me, and I feel it has won.
Desperation takes me, I cannot see beyond.
The hope that I need is far beyond gone.”
She told him in confidence, fear on her lips.
Her demons speaking through her in venomous drips.
He reached out to touch her, to lift up her heart
Crossing the distance that kept them apart.
He cradled her head in his mind’s eye,
Whispered to her quietly with a sigh.
“Sleep, sleep, there’s always the ‘morrow
And while I know I cannot save you from sorrow
I’ll be there if you need me, your own helping hand
We’ll face down the darkness, together we’ll stand.
Till the day you push me away
Beside you I’ll stay
And do what I can to keep the whispers at bay.”
