Handle with care

Handle with care,

The wounds are still healing,

Maybe you are the one to finally hear me,

I’ve been calling out so long,

I’d given up hope of being found,

Not left here,

But this designated safe place,

A place of my own making set adrift.

If I were a box I’d be marked thus,

I’m easily scared,

So handle with care,

‘FRAGILE’ and ‘HOLD THIS WAY UP’

I trust in you and my trust is rare.

Timid and shy, how frustrating it must be for you,

Our relationship crawls along,

To say ‘snail’s pace’ would be kind,

These are things I haven’t done before,

So please be patient with me,

This heart I have is a little tender,

But it loves in its own way.

If I were a box I’d be marked thus,

I’m easily scared,

So handle with care,

‘FRAGILE’ and ‘HOLD THIS WAY UP’

I trust in you and my trust is rare.
