Cracked wide open
Taking a chance
Insides bared
Terrified and
Vulnerable

And you are there
Next to me
Holding me
Open
In your own way

I feel safe
The dam bursts
my mouth starts
Talking

and talking

and talking

please stop talking

and talking

and...

Finally
I stop
Control the anxiety
Face wet
Was it too much?
My eyes leak
Am I too much?

Then

Morning
At last
Restless night over
Uncertain and nervous
You are still here
You are still holding me
You hold me tighter

For a moment
I can breathe
