Heal Me

I know
That I’m broken.

So many emotional scars…

So many failed attempts,
To connect,
To reach,
To be the one and only,

To…

To love.

You don’t have to do this,
I know,

And quite frankly,

I’m not worthy
Of you.

But now,
In this moment,

I’m hurting so badly,
And need so badly…

You.

I don’t ask for
Your forever…

I don’t deserve that.

I don’t ask for
Your sympathy…

That as well,
I don’t deserve.

All I ask for
In this wretched moment
Of my life…

What I beg for,

Is just your touch,

Just your understanding,

Just your means to mend.

Wrap me in your arms,
Let me rest my head
On your shoulder,
Hiding my tears
In the waves of your curl,

Wanting so desperately
To find a new light
And warmth.

Just hold me,

Just guide me,

Take my hands
And my heart,

Bandage my wounds
With your love

And heal me.

      1. Yes, to feel worthy of love, to feel heard, but most importantly to love ourselves. Heal our wounds, count our blessings and know that we are whole and worthy ❤️
