hand in the dark

You told me I was a bad bitch
offered me a bear hug
and couldn't know how perfect
your words hit my heart

There's a darkness lingering inside
and I fear to sleep
for fear of drowning in the dark
when no one is watching

Sometimes I forgot
that I am loved

In my darkest moments
the weakness in me
wants to let go of the life raft
because I've lost the thread
of whatever life
I was meant to be holding onto
because surely it's not this one
where fear and panic
threaten to break me open
in the ever present silence
that seems to punctuate my days

You told me I was a bad bitch
offered me a bear hug
and couldn't know how perfect
your words hit my heart

In today's darkness
you reminded me I am strong
