~ i keep holding on ~

slight pep in your sigh
dim gleam in your eye
shadows beneath are clearing

the lightness of your burden
hangs awkwardly from your heart
holding on for dear life
praying just to let go


a gentle command
as you pry white-knuckled fingers one-by-one


a whispered promise
accompanied by a sturdy net of amiable hands


a glimpse of hope
transient awareness there exists so much more than this
