be here with me

will you be here with me?

let’s not talk. 

we don’t even need to look at one another.

as little as a gentle brush of my hand could be too extreme,

igniting the currents that flow to my tender soul 

(for today it is raw and exposed).

i just need you to be here 

with me. 

lay down beside me. 


your breath might be enough 

to remind me that i am alive,

here, now,

no longer alone.

this is all i ask, 

be here with me?
