Holding Back - Poem by Brittany Quail

Holding back tears as I think of you
Holding in anger and hate for myself

Holding back laughter at some of the things we used to do
Holding out for some hope

Holding Back from screaming as loud as I can
Holding off the greif as long as possible

Holding back harsh words as I see you walk down the street
Holding on to my sanity

Holding back the feelings I still have for you
Holding my own hand as I try to guide myself through this

Holding out for anything
Holding up my entire life, all because of you
