Poetry: Hold Me Close

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

Hold me close

When the shivers of the past

Clutch my throat.

 

Hold me close

As I can’t stop the shaking

Remembering.

 

Hold me close

And tell me a new message

Write into my soul every language

That will speak forever

The foreign words,

Love.

 

Just hold me close

As the pain weeps from my soul

It is dark– I’m sorry for that-

But I need you to stay

Don’t let me go.

 

Let me stay here for a moment longer

Let the pain weep bitterly

So all the poison comes out

Hold me close.

 

Be patient while I heal

Love, please promise me

You’ll hold me close.

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
