I've seen you shake,
I've seen you cry.
I've seen you fall
and wonder why.

And I wonder
why we're dead.
Why we're dead inside.

So there you sit,
all alone.
Wasting away,
your sorrow's grown.

And all I want
is to help.
help you laugh inside.

Listen to me,
hear me out.
Let me scrape
away your doubt.

Realize I'm here,
waiting for you.
Open up inside.

I'll share your pain,
I'll take your fear.
Don't push me back,
just let me near.

And you won't fall
if I catch you.
You won't break inside.

I keep trying
to talk to you.
You're hurting and
you're struggling through.

I'm hurting too,
chasing you.
I've lost myself inside.

I'm falling down,
you're falling too.
I can't fix me,
I can't help you.

I try to find
you in the dark.
I hear your scream inside.

I try to stand,
forgetting how.
I'm sorry but
I'm losing now.

I'm sorry that
you lost your way.
That you're trapped inside.

And I wonder
why we're dead.
Why we're dead inside.

No, just a poem. I have written a couple songs before, but none of them are up on TeenInk.

This poem has a second part in artwork, however. The piece is located in the inks section, and is titled "WITHIN" as well. (advanced search will likelye work alot better to find it than the normal search)

I had a lot of imagery upon reading this piece. Was this a song? Good job.
