Shared Burdens

battered and bruised

shattered and drawn

fading away

into the gray



dragged down

those deepest depths

the fear is real

sleep escapes



only but a heartbeat away

from what

I don’t know

headlong crashing into life

fading away from the blue



hearts are breaking

I can feel it, can you

let me carry your sorrows

let me shed tears for you

and

take them when they come
