How can I be there for you

How can I be there for you

To metabolize these things between us

That are true

What things do you need to hear

Sweetly said in nuances

That perish every fear

How can I be there for you

To staunch the arterial bleed

Your insides feel

To be present but unglued

From your eyes, yearning in need

Albeit, with lips sealed

If you tell me

A random “I love you”

Or a hug from behind

Or a road trip to Maseru

With so many axes to grind

I would rather this than silence

The violence

That now makes me ask

How can I be there for you
