Hold On


Hold On

As angry as a petulant child,
my rage spills onto you.
All the while
you hold out your hand.
I reach out blindly
only to recoil from
the warmth of your fire.
The thaw seems at times
to fuel the pain,
longing to return
to the numbness,
before the frostbite
burns my skin.
No longer can I stand here
frozen in time
nor turn to look back.
If anything,
I have learned
that there is no escape,
and so with gratitude,
I will hold on.
