on loving you when you’re hurting [poem]

let me hold you in my heart
shelter you from the storm of your own trauma
until you’re ready to face the thunder again
let me pick up the slack
I’ll help you carry the heavy burden
of your aching soul
as far as you need to take it
because I get it
the reason you can’t always accept
kind words or a soft touch
when the bitter hollowness inside
screams that you deserve to be empty
it’s hard not to listen
let me give you space too
a silent room to be alone in
but not lonely
I can stand outside your door
until you’re ready to open it again
I have the time
and I’m happy to give it to you
