    How Do You...? ....... #MightyPoets

    How do you let someone kiss you
    When their lips are a nightmare reseen?

    How do you let another hold you
    When their touch makes you want to just scream?

    How do you lay down next to someone
    When you feel as rigid as a board?

    How do you let another inside
    When your heart's padlocked right to the core?

    How do you open up to someone
    When you can't put to words what you feel?

    How do you give another your life
    When your life doesn't even seem real?

    How do you ground yourself to someone
    When your need is to break free and fly?

    How do you learn to trust another
    When your walls are built up to the sky?

    How can you share this time here on earth
    When you have not a thing left to give?

    How do you turn such pain into gain
    When you're too scared to let go and live?

    How do you ease the panic inside
    When fear is a grip that won't end?

    How do you quell the heartache and pain
    When you're unsure which wound you should tend?

    How do you give your soul up to love
    When you still haven't found the right key?

    How do you attach yourself to a world
    When invisible's how you feel seen?

    How do you heal those scars of the past
    When bandaids are in short supply?

    How do you learn you're more than enough
    When tears flow nonstop through your eyes?

    How do you fix this pattern of hurt?
    Well this I so wish that I knew;
    Cause I haven't a clue to the answers we seek
    To each question that starts, "How do you…?"
