For better, for worse...

Will you hold my hand?
Will you help me to fight
When dark clouds descend,
Obscuring the light?

Will you stay by my side,
Help me weather the storm
Of fragile emotions,
Smashed, ripped and torn?

Can you every forgive
My spiteful tongue,
Spitting venom at you
Over deeds you’ve not done?

Could you hold me close
When I’m lost and scared,
Smothered by sorrows
That live in my head?

I rejected your friendship,
Compassion ignored;
Forgive me my dearest,
That I am thus flawed.

Pay no heed to my moods,
The tempestuous force
Bringing heartache, confusion;
It’s par for the course.

I hate that I hurt you,
T’was never my plan,
All I want’s your acceptance,
In all that I am.

If you hold my hand,
I’ll give strength to you too,
For we are all broken,
And that includes you.
