Lie down

I'm stranded.
Can't move.
The surface of the earth keeps on calling my body
to lie it down
To feel the heat 
And face the sky
And I feel lonely
Even if there are billion of stars 
looking down at me
I want to close my eyes
but I'm scared
not of seeing my mind
but of seeing the dark 
I can't feel
but I can't stop writing
Just let me stay here a little bit more
only another few seconds 
and then I'll stand up
I swear.

    Your poem was very touching, and I do understand it all too clearly. Sending you a big hug, and some helium to help you rise above, life can be so hard, but if we look for the steel, we find it inside of us, Love xo
