Hold Me

Hold me and heal me
Closer to your chest
Listening to hearts beating
As I lay down to rest

Hold me and feel me
Keep my heart in your hands
Delicately wrapped in cellophane

Crinkle paper
Bubble wrap

Tap tap tapping
On window panes
Taking away all the pain
Of loss

A moment

Noticing

The clicking of keys in a lock, the ticking of seconds on a clock.

An American sentence.
