Hold my heel,
As the rest of my body hurtles towards the ocean,
As my fingertips graze the water,
As I gulp down the fear that you’ll let go.
Hold me tight in your arms,
As I walk invisible,
As I am glared at by others,
When your light makes me stand out.
Hold my head,
When I don’t have the strength anymore,
When my limbs simply fail me,
When you’re all that I have.
Hold me in your hand,
Guide me to the streams that will wash me clean,
To the place where water soaks in my skin,
To where I am all that I am,
And all I am,
