And I’m your safety rope.

If only you would find comfort in me
Like you’re scared of the DARK

And I am your anchor.

If only you would draw on me

  1. that is a really lovely poem;I love the similes — something went awry in the boat stanza but I got the gist; the first stanza is a stunning introduction; I;m impressed by this as you are by my post 🙂
