Be my Atlas


John Singer Sargent – Atlas and the Hesperides

tears falling from my face
staining the bed you never slept in.

every stain remind me
of my own mistakes.

surrounded by then
i’m engulfed in pain.


i need your arms
to carry my sorrows.

they’re huge,
i’m always in trouble!

will you be kind
and let me borrow them?

Atlas is a Titan in Greek Mythology who supported the heavens.

      Or in the afternoon 🙂
      I particularly loved the opening two lines. They say so much about what you wanted and what really happened.
