It All Starts and Ends with You

I just want to know

That you are okay.

That you feel safe

And you are warm

That you feel loved.

I just want

Everything for you.

Is it so much delirium to want

You to always be happy

Doesn’t it mean anything

That I would do everything

Just to see you content

And peaceful in this world?

It’s not just your pain

That claws at me from

Deep inside.

It’s the clouds of pain

That hover over

And threaten

To settle

Like sweet mist

On everything.

My body crackles

And churns

With the want to stop

All the hurt in the world




With you.
