You Hold Me Together (Madison Elizabeth Holland-Lafayete, LA)

My pieces lay scattered on the floor Pale red amber freckles Jagged oozing emotion My fingers fall apart before I can even hold myself together When I look at you And see your raw self Vulnerable and open and real I see the same as me: Broken and falling around yourself You and I look at each other And simply see someone That we cannot help but love I must love you, you can’t help but love me We are compelled and drawn to each other Indescribably and undeniably I gather you up Hold the pieces of you to my chest I will never let any little cracked bit Escape my loving hands Because I will always keep you close Collect your tears and problems Hold you together And love you until you are ok Even if it takes forever. I promise this because I love you And because you’ve always done the same For me.

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
