my heart looks like your heart

i am



when something is killing your spirit
and you don't know how your legs will move you
because you feel so weak and it's as if you are standing by
watching it happen
and your attempts to stop it feel like when you're in a dream
the kind where you try to yell but your voice won't come out

and you need someone to wake you up
show you the truth
the reality
that it isn't dying underneath your smile
and behind your skin and bones
that you are safer than you think
that you aren't losing your soul

i am
where you are
i am
holding you from the inside out
i am
breathing
for you
