Broken and bruised,

Waiting on you?

Waiting to be set free,

Free from my misery.

You say I'm special,

What a lie.

Now tell me the truth,

Have I gone wrong,

Have I?

Of course you lie,

What a surprise.

Leave me be,

I'm still here,

Aren't I?

Now lay me down to die.


The author's comments:

This talks about the ache of having to deal with people nagging at you when you show signs of sadness and thinking you have to face them alone. Hope you enjoy the poem, comment and give it a thumbs up if you like it.
