Lifeline - Poem by gina prettybrowneyes

hold me, wrap me up all tight
squeeze the sadness from my eyes
these eyes, these eyes, cries and cries
hold me through the shadowed night
as darkness creeps along the walls
be there when my cover falls
hold me with your strength and might
sheild me from my thoughts inside
lurking, hiding, the back of my mind
hold me 'till seeps through dawn light
pale light streaming through the curtains' holes
another day, and my lifeline still holds
