Hold Onto Me (Poetry)

“Hold Onto Me” is a poem about someone who just can’t seem to let a beautiful girl out of their mind, heart, and soul, because they feel like nothing without her.

Hold onto me

If you let go

I may fall

And shatter

But the brown-eyed goddess

Says to me, “If I love you

I must set you free”

I shudder and shake

Unsure why she should

Let me go so soon

Hold onto me

I say to her

Your beauty

Is magic I need

“You have it within you”

She says to me

“To be free and fly”

But I will never forget

The touch of her skin

The soft of her hair

The warmth of her smile

“This is not right”

She says to me

“You will find yourself”

Somehow, someway

I want to believe her

Even still today
