hormones have taken over my heart.

"what do you need?"

"i think i'm just going to cry for a bit."

"do you want me to hold you?"

before i could nod 'yes'
he wrapped me in his arms.
i felt small and scared and safe.
my brimming tears broke free
and stained my face with worry.
between stuttered sobs
i felt peace come back.
