Shake me I’m holding

Stifle me, before I let go
I’ve been living too long off of the old
Things you left, things you opened
All you possibly never intended to finish
When I’m better I’m my own woman
Sinking in memory I’m human
Recalling your best I’m caught again
Knowing your faults, too compassionate
Even brick driveways have their cracks
All breathtaking joy has a drawback
Love promises pain, signs away your rights
hopes and dreams, into equally broken hands
What little I know when wisdom is called for
What intellect lacks understanding swallows
You’re a pinpoint of light, a garland, but not a sun
I’ll wish I was yours while knowing I am safer not
