Ones To Hold Onto

When we crumble
When we fall
Platitudes part lips
At a rapid rate
To stem emotion
Ease their discomfort
Tape us back together
Long enough
For their quick escape
To avoid sentiments
And any exploration
Of feelings and experience
For the mirror may turn
And they wouldn’t want
To look too deeply
Those that remain
The ones who hold your head
Stand with you
Listen and examine
Help the blade to cut to truth
And reveal their own too
They are the ones
To keep to your heart
They are the ones
To show your heart to
