Cuddles

Sometimes
all you want
is something
so simple
the words
you must use
to ask for it
feel too complex
and redundant
so you remain
silent—
hoping that
the one you love
will feel you
slipping under
and without
even asking
if you need
a hand
will pull you
back up
to the surface
and hold you
until you’re
ready to let go.
