In Good Company

I’m grateful for poems
And for books.
For movies,
And for all art.
I’m grateful I have
Something to distract
From my heart falling
To pieces,
Perhaps never to be
Pieced together again.
But the words in
Front of me –
The words of a stranger
That somehow echo
The very thoughts in my head
Find a way to soothe my spirit.
I’ll be alright,
Even in my darkest hour,
When all is despair and gloom –
These words on a page
Will keep me company.
