you manage [poem]

you manage to love me
through the broken heartbeats
and the new beginnings
the rough edges
and the calloused hands
through my too-deep darkness
you manage to find me
when I’m so lost I sink into myself
consumed by self-pity
and self-doubt
and Self
and you bring me back
your love both compass and map
you manage to save me
even when I don’t want to be rescued
from that pit
you know the one
where shadows whisper sweet lies
and reality starts to fade away
painlessly
you manage to remind me
that I can keep breathing through the pain
that I’m not alone
that yesterday can go fuck itself
and that today is a free pass to start over
whenever I’m ready
