Stay

by Nikki Anne Schmutz

There are
leaves in the pool
floating about
like refugees
on a vast ocean
Like the tears
cascading
down my face
Unknown
and yet revered
by those
who see
the pain
I harbor
I have never
felt whole
never known
what it was like
to be me
without the
carried weight
Please
allow me
a freedom
I have never known
Grant me
a stay
inside your
heart
