Strength

Pretty girl
With the blue eyes
Let me tell you
About strength
Younger I know
But your pain
Splits open my scars
I bleed memory
A ghostly red
But I’ll stitch myself
Up every time
Because healing you
Is a part of
Loving you

Every time you
Breathe yourself awake
You are strong
And I wish I could be
There to hold you
Every night
But the truth is
You don’t need me to be
You haven’t realised yet
But you’ve been strong
Your whole life
From day one
Bull headed
And everything
You’ve overcome
Is too much
For just one poem
