Be There

April 1, 2009
Bring me home where I’m wanted
Love me and care for me again
Don’t leave my heart as you did before:
My eyes are filled with the daunting ghost of my unpleasant past
I am alone.
No one understands my despair, my heart races when you say goodbye
I sometimes feel confused;
You don’t notice the scars left behind when you wave your hands
You don’t know the pain I feel when you’re not by my side:
I want your warmth and comfort to be there for me
I wanted you’re your support–all I’d asked for;
You let me fall.
I never got back up.
Now I crawl on the floor, scraping my knees
Staying afloat in the bitterness of this world but reality hit me–
I follow you wherever you go, groveling at your feet,
I am fallen and still you have not reached out a helpful hand
I see you laughing in my face.
The betrayal of a friend, the manipulation of my soft heart
You hurt me crushed me beyond repair
You are cruel.

Some call you love.

i like this a lot.
i like how you emphasized words like 'torture' 'abandonment' 'misunderstood' by giving them their own lines.

and by the way: at least you can write depressing poetry. i know people who can only write happy poetry. hahahaha

great job keep it up

return the favor ? :)

Strong. I liked it, it touched my heart. I recently broke up with someone that meant a lot to me and this explains most of the feelings. Keep writing and I'll keep reading. ♥

You are right, that was kind of depressing. but i think it was beautiful all the same. i write depressing poetry too, because i suck at writing happy stuff, even though i'm happy :) your poem was wonderful though, i think . It was put together really well.
