Poet's Notes
(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.

I'm bleeding right behind you

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
