Wish I could hold you in a way

you’d know it’s safe

just being held


I’d watch your tears of diamonds fall

and warn off scavengers

as they land on my shoulder


Why does the world

impose this need for some

on miracles?


Would embracing arms so frighten

cultures, philosophies or religion

or the way it use to be?


I wish I could hold you in a way

you’d know there is

nothing due


that I am only collecting

to give your diamonds

back to you


Feeling lost sometimes

in a world that lacks

such full embrace


Feeling like reasons

are the ones that take up

all the space


But if I could

yes I would

just hold you safe
