i shall keep silent,
watching how your body withers;
remain serene as one by one your castles fall,
because i know that only you
can fix your fissures
and if you can’t then there’s no cure for you at all

but i will hold your crumbling parts
until you find a peaceful place to sleep;
without a word, hold on to you
whenever. . .
until you have
no reason left to weep
