I'm bleeding right behind you

(Show)

A cry for help voiced in the midst of two lovers breaking up. A relationship in turmoil or perhaps the victim of an addiction pleading for help.

We’ve loved for so long
That can’t ever change

My pain isn’t obvious to you, I would never let it show
But clues I’ve left for you to know

I’ve tried, but healing on my own, I’m just not that strong
I need you, I need you to see me 

My shadow
My silhouette
Somehow you must know

Smile as I submerge and save me with a strong hand
Plant your feet so you make a strong stand

I’m right behind you
I’m bleeding right behind you
Won’t you save me too?

Amazing. I could get used to this kind of poetry, there's almost more left unsaid than said. John
