i wish

I wish I had multiple arms

So that I could someone while hiding 

Their eyes from the worst of the world

So that I could hold their hands and keep them warm 

Through the crisp coldness of winter

So that I could cover their ears

From the words from twisted mouths that speak them

From the lies that fall from everyones tongues like leaves on a tree

I wish I had multiple arms so that I could close their lips

From saying those words and lies

I would so that I could keep them safe and warm in my embrace

So that I could caress the tears from their soft cheeks

I wish I had multiple arms so that I could do all these things

While holding them tight, warm, and full of love-

But I dont have muliple arms.

Then i'll just use the ones I have
