When your lover need emotional help.

My sponge of comfort heavy

her tears continue to fall

Her arms squeeze

the assurance I offer

Let me burden her pain

loan her wounds


She is too fragile

at breaking


I am

her rock

sanity and muscle


I accept the load

crippled and worthy

Her smile my reward

a bounty to cherish

The blanket of compassion falls dry

her cry absorbed into history
