Deadweight.When my mind takes the strength from my body, hold me
Wrap yourself around me so tightly that some of your strength may transpire.
Carry my deadweight just until I am strong again.
I’ll try not to let it take too long, just wait with me.
Whisper to me, shout to me, sing to me.
Just distract me and make me feel safe for a bit
Press yourself against me, make me feel something other than this weakness that consumes me.
