a very thick Thing envelopes me,
My words, they come out muddled,
muffled by insecurity and frightened
fingertips as they type out messages
into Darkness to meet His eyes. Finally,
Calm. To soothe the wet eyes and gasping lungs.
Get strong! He screams though tears. I'm
proud! He whispers through a frown. Embrace
the Pain, He says through smiles.
Welcome it. Love it.
