I hold tight while you rage against me,
anger as I have seen only in you.
Beating fiercely in defiance of me,
frustration turning to bruises on my skin.
I keep quiet,
tears locked hard on the inside
as I spill words I am trained to use
to calm you,
to no avail.
Your anger is outside you now,
something you will later apologise for,
But no apology is needed.
I hold tight while you fight and flail,
I hold tight
because of who I am.
I hold tight
because of who you are.
