Lifelines

Feeling afloat at sea
In choppy waters
I had come to a startling
Realization of needing
Lifelines to help me
Survive, lift me up,
Take me in.
Never before have
I been bold enough
To seek out what I needed
Most from my closest friends.
I felt selfish, weak, unsure
Of my request.
My vulnerability begged
To be acknowledged in ways
I didn’t understand.
My fears subsided
As each lifeline lovingly
Reached out to me to
Pull me in from the storm.
