There’s a sudden thump in my heart
I breathe in heavily and let it out all precarious.
Unsure, puzzled, apprehensive, contemplating
It’s like a sudden sandstorm in the meadows.
Am I on the wrong bay?
A subtle tinge on my wrist…
“I am holding you, don’t hold yourself back”.
I can’t see who it is, but I know the voice
A relief, I am no more unchaperoned.
The splinters are like sand glitters
The sandstorm does no more perturb me.
I clench my teeth; close my eyes, gripping the ground tighter.
His on my hands do not slacken a bit
My faith on our camaraderie strengthen all the more.
A linchpin of this lifelong enterprise; a cornerstone of my existence
By each other, we stand tall, even if the sky fall.
