Gravity - a poem

that which holds me closest to earth
is the gravity in your voice as you lean
closer to me
to my words
and tell me that it will all be okay

it's the gravity that stops me spiraling away
that holds me down 
fixing my thoughts 
to things that matter more
than everything and nothing

even when i cannot hear
more than what is said
the inferences lost to the wind
and the noise in my head
the gravity pulls me closer
to what is most important 

that which holds me closest to you
is the sound of your voice drowning out mine
and theirs. 
yours pulls me together
holds me safe 
and secure
attached to the world 

it tells me i am important
that you care
that you notice me 
and that you love me
the gravity pulls me to you
