As I Fall

I stand here,
Seemingly all alone,
In this dark, empty room
Where every little thing echoes,
The beat of my heart,
The pounding of my head.
My forehead is burning up,
I feel utterly helpless
In this box-like room,
Commonly called my mind.
I feel that no one can save me now,
No one,
For no one would care enough to.
All I can think about
Is just how alone I am,
And I just want this to end.
I try to let the scream out
That is so clear inside my head,
But it's like someone has stolen my voice,
Put it barely out of my reach.
I don't know what is going on,
And the fear of the truth
Keeps me from wanting to know.
There is nothing I can do
But let myself fall,
Let myself fall to the ground.
I search for a positive side,
But it seems there is none.
I can feel myself just letting go,
Giving up.

But as I head toward the concrete aisle,
Something suddenly stops me,
Like a fire from the cold,
Like a shield from the enemy.
It is your hand,
And looking up,
I see your concerned face,
And I realize my horrible foolishness.
Now I know that you'll always be there,
That I am never alone.
I'm never alone,
And you'll always be there
To catch me when I fall.
