the crushing weight of everything you’ve ever experienced

i see you collapsing under the crushing weight of everything youve ever experienced. your expressions are forlorn – head tilted down. hugs are hesitant, not for lack of want, but for fear of not being wanted. this tender, delicate state calls for compassion, understanding and equally delicate care. i know firsthand that i am not the solution to your inner struggle – but i do not intend to heighten any sort of pain either. i care about you and your well-being. i am here for you as others have been for me when they were strong and i was weak. i choose to do this by focusing on light, especially in your presence.
