like butter scraped over too much bread

its been a long time since
i stopped holding your hands
and started to hold on to my own
in between my ribs, the valleys
fit my fingers to bone
and when i tell you it will be okay
its the only thing i know
what i’ve told myself every time
you say that you must go
