Alone

Is it too hard to ask you to help me after you said you would?
I let you know how much I needed it
Yet you give me no answer
Just another hollow reminder
Of another person that doesn’t care
You told me you would be my friend
Yet now when of you I ask a little
You tell me I can do it myself
However, the truth is evident
I can’t make it on my own
Your turning me away just adding to my heart’s load
The cup which holds my sorrow overflows
For the single reason I am betrayed once more
There is nowhere to go
I have been deserted
Not for the first time
Yet by far this is the most difficult to bear of them all
How much time does it take to understand my fear?
How much does it take for a person to really care?
Am I really asking too much?
Can’t you just set aside a little
Which to me would mean so much?
Still you refuse
I feel no need to use force
Instead accept the fact
That once more I am alone
Inside I am weak
And need so much help
I shall not ask you again
Another scar has been left on my heart
I shall let it heal
But only a little
Some of the pain cannot be erased
So I will just leave it there
And feel the reason I am empty
I am standing alone

Nice! I agree w/ silverdawn - it holds you until the end! I think all it needs is a bit of graphic imagery to show, rather than tell, your pain. Great job, and thanks for the comments!

I like the imagery that this piece beholds, but sometimes, standing alone is the best thing to do. "Stand up for what you believe in, even if you are standing alone."

It's sad and very beautiful. It's full of emotion. The fourth and fifth lines are also my favorite because, in my opinion, they are the most powerful.

I decided that I love this poem upon reading the 4th and 5th lines. And then it just got better and better from there! I also like how it's almost song-like, at least when I read it x) i don't know what else to say besides the fact that i REALLYYYY heart this poem<3 and i hope writing out your feelings helped you feel better (:
