caretaking.

sometimes its as if i’m contained within her
as opposed to the other way around
she gathers me up,
every last drop
of hurt,
of despair,
of confusion
she collects me in to herself
like a storm cloud
until finally i’m too heavy to bear
tears and fears
leaking out

she shouldn’t be the one
making it all ok
and i’m learning now
how to gather her in to me
to collect her fears
and keep her safe and warm
