Hold me, softly

Tight against you,

Close enough,

To hear your heartbeat. 


Let me bury my head,

In your chest.

To dissemble my horrible,

Sorrowful tears.


Just run your fingers,

Through my hair.

And whisper sweet nothing's,

Into my ear.


I just want you to be there,

And hold me,

When everything in the world,

Falls apart.

A simple, sweet poem I wrote while working on a future part of one of my stories. I've always found it comforting the feeling of someone running their fingers through my hair and just holding me tight.

We all long to be warmly held. Even men, thou they are hard pressed to admit it. Nice sentiments and good job.

That is always such a soothing feeling. I like the simplicity of the poem, but it also makes it seem less vulnerable.

It always is! Thank you and I'm a little curious, what you mean by less vulnerable?

it makes it seem as if the person is still speaking with one arm stretchered out to keep the feelings at bay with the lack of senses described (smells, sounds, etc... Then again, my personal style includes much detail. so my opinion may be biased.
