The terror grips my heart
I promised you were safe with me
You came to collect
I have to tell you my secrets
My undreamt dreams
Let you see me blemishes on display
While I pray you are who you say you are
It’s so much easier to accept than to give
Easier to listen, to hold, to let you be
It’s terrifying to give you even a small part of my burden
Which you said you would take…willingly
The unknown on the other side of doubt
You are either my greatest leap
Or my longest fall
