Dear Quiet One

I wish I could hold everything you are feeling

Put all of your emotions into mason jars

Divide and label them to be placed on my shelves until they aren’t so heavy that I can see you don’t breathe well

They will say “This is for when you feel brave enough to face the mirror again”

“This one is from that time that you weren’t sure if you could make it another day” - throw it out my 6 story window the day you’re ready to open the first one.

There will be one labeled for the memory last time someone made you feel loved and I promise you it'll be here when you need to remember someone cares about you

Remember that the wine glasses next to it are not just for the days that you hate yourself

Remember You are one of the only ones who can reach my shelves

Know you are safe here

You are safe here
