Everyone's going through a hard time...more than all of us can ever know. Everyone's got issues. You don't have to understand it all. You just have to know. They've got issues. Be there.

Humpty Dumpty

Don't be afraid to fall apart
Do not hide in front of me
Blow up and burst
I don't care

Ignite the flames
Freeze like ice

Don't be afraid to fall apart
Not with me, not with me

I'm not perfect
Neither are you

We burst
We ignite
We freeze
We live
We die

We'll both be humpty dumpty,
One at a time
We'll fall from the wall

The difference being
I'll surely put you back
Together again
And again and again

So fall as you like
I'll catch you
If you want me to
Or I'll let you fall

But know at the bottom
I'll be waiting
To put you back together again

I like this one, callisto.

It reminds me of a friend of mine, she's always there to put me back together when I fall.

keep writing, we all love your stuff.

Stanza 7 gets it just right: Fall (to pieces), like HD; but you, unlike poor Humpty, WILL be put back together (by me) again and again and again... Cool write!
