Every Part of You

I stand in the dark
At the side of your bed
Beckoning your anxiety away

Reassuring you 
I’m here-
You’re safe
You’re loved
You’re not alone

Midnight hours tick away 
The morning will soon greet us

I ask
Are you feeling sick
Hurt
Are you afraid

My questions are met with your silence
Left suspended in the air

You fall asleep
But not for long
Sleep never visits long

I’m at the front line 
Fighting your silent war
A war-
Locked somewhere deep inside of you

Sometimes its not so silent 
Its loud screams
Hiding in small, dark spaces
Hysteria
Head banging
Dangerous 
Self harming
Eloping 
Isolation 

Sometimes there is no war
It’s Thomas the Train
Teddy
Giggles
Hugs
Silly sounds
Tricks
You wanting to hold my hand

No one said it would be easy

However,

It’s divine-
Every part of you
