Day 128: Cloak

I promise to wear your worries

like a jewel encrusted cloak.

Each tear as precious as diamonds,

fears hidden in deep sapphires and

rages as vivid as rubies.

I will carry the weight of all your sorrows,

as they lay fitted on these shoulders

baked in the warmth of your joys

and made granite strong.

Gift me with disquiet,

test me with your content

and love me wholeheartedly.
