Quagmire

I’m asking.
I’m begging.
I plead with you now.
To help me get through this,
because I don’t know how.

In the deep darkness
Soul-crushing darkness
Please come and walk
alongside of me.

And help me to hear you
Instead of fear you.
Please lift me up by
My upturned arms.

Because I am sinking
Into the quagmire
of expectations
and broken dreams.

Thanks for heart-composting with me! I appreciate your words.
