Hold this bag of bones

This sack of twisting, writhing nerves

Squeeze the fear out of me

Or hold it in.

I am a messy friend today

I will cry and laugh at the same time

I will jangle in the skin I’m in

Rattle and shake

Wet like a lake

My depths know no bounds

The bottom of me is murky

I can’t get away with quirky


Hold me please. Restrain me

Otherwise I will

    This sentiment just seeps into me, no it pours into me and I fee like I might burst.

      What a wonderful response – glad you can relate – actually I’m sorry you can relate but glad it speaks to you x

        I’m sorry too. But hopefully I will be fine. Thanks for transporting me with your poem.
