When you want to guard your loved ones against everything...sometimes that might include you also. i had never thought i could ever be thinking like this. So i just want to take it easy and not be paranoid about it.

To Protect You

To nurture myself
To nourish you
To savour you
I run to you

To protect you,
what do I do?

I need to be easy
and believe that
You can deal with yourself
while I take the plunge.

To be steady
is not within me
But still I can rest.

Yes I like this take on protection.
We usually wouldn't consider ourselves as someone to be protected from!

John Ashleigh
I admire the level of sincerity. A raw and powerful poem. Thankyou for sharing this with us. *applaud*


A gem of a poem. You capture the desire one has within to protect the people we love, sometimes from ourselves.
