She stared at me with eyes weary
Forehead creased with worry
A smile without
Her thoughts concealed
As shadowed as a dark hallway crawling with imaginary monsters
As bright as the misery she tried fruitlessly to hide
I longed save her, to wrap my arms around her and hold her tight till she the comfort from my arms overwhelmed her
I longed to keep her here, in my arms...for always, protecting her from the unfriendly claws of this life
I longed to tell her, to whisper comfort and safety in her ears...everything will be fine, you never have a thing to worry about.
I longed to wipe her tears
I longed to wish away her fears
I longed to soothe her pain
I longed to slay her demons
I longed to keep her safe forever
I longed for alot of things
I could only long for so many....
