Best of Both Worlds

If there were two worlds

and two of you

one here and one over there

she whispered

“So that you can show me how”

as gentle winds lifted her above the abyss

Got’cher Back

I’ve seen what they’ve done
under the guise of love
maybe to make themselves feel all big and bad
or maybe just for fun
Beaten and battered you
taken everything you own
pushed you down again and again
made you feel alone
I’ve seen some of the choices you’ve made
struggling to make yourself some semblance of whole
taped and glued yourself together
and built that wall
How it hurt me to see you take another fall
But here I stand beside you
helping you to your feet and patching up your knees
helping you walk into the coming sunrise that is your due
