8/29/19 | Apart

Look into my eyes

And see the pools of water

That dare to ask

You to cross without holding your breath.

If the descent scares you

Hold my hand and let me guide you deeper

And deeper

Into the very corners of my mind.

I promise the comfort

Is worth every bit of fear.

I’ve been waiting for someone

Brave enough

To take me apart

And put me back together.

Even if the pieces don’t fit back together

Perfectly

At least I will get to spend some time

With you.

Though the time is never enough

The sweet yearn for your touch

Is enough to quench my appetite.

If nothing more than knowing

That I tread across your mind

Once

Maybe twice

Then all the pain and struggle

Is worth it.

I’ve been waiting for someone

Brave enough

To take me apart

And put me back together.

Tell me

Is that you?

Philadelphia.
