{September 6, 2013}   You Save Me

carry
i wonder if you know how much you save me,
keep me from crumbling to the floor
or closing my eyes and stepping on the gas till i fly into the sea
of course i exaggerate greatly,
well, except for the crumbling to the floor part,
how did you know this beautiful september day rained on me
while everyone else breathed sunshine,
just words maybe, but a lifeline pulling me back in
keeping me from drifting out to sea without a compass,
that blend of perfect that reads me before i do,
till i wonder who’s in charge,
and yearn to hand you the reins,
or just a tiny little string that attaches me to you
invisible, like we are
