Holding back

a hand that you used to hold tight
and knew like yours
felt the strength of
traced the lines of, front and back
slipped from your fingers
like sand
like time
it’s too late now
to get it back
because you doubted,
that it wasn’t holding you
but that it was
holding you back.

(I amuse myself with wordplay, heh)


  1. Profound! You know how to pull a reader in. And there is such a underlying sense of sorrow. Crafted in such a brilliant way!
