Ground Me

by Sam Newton



Ground me
Glue me to the floor
Tell me
I need nothing more
Than to hold you
Safe and satisfied
Can I reconcile
The person that I despise

Help me
Keep a steady hand
Ground me
Make me understand
There is nothing
In the wild left to tame
Do not forsake me

Ground me
Like a promise made
Teach me
How to be afraid
Darker waters
Daring me to dive in
There’s a guide
Tempting me to find him

So ground me
Ground me
