I’ve got so much to say I said
Although I said it in my head
No one around to lend their ear
No one around these words to hear.
I’ve so much to give I said aloud
I stood up tall and straight and proud
But alas there was not a soul to hear
Not a soul and I’m alone I fear.
Would you listen if I spoke to you?
Would you not judge or laugh or mew?
Would you listen with you head and heart?
Would you stay and let me start?
Could you heal by being strong
When I feel like I don’t belong
When I start to stand through it all
And succumb to the inevitable fall?
Will you pick me up and dust me down?
Turn upside down my stupid frown?
Will you hold me close and not let go?
How can I trust you, how can I know?
I’m not worth time nor your lies
Your longing look behind false eyes
Spare me false hope and misdirections
Save my soul for my reflections.
Would you hold me when I push away
Though I have nothing for you to stay?
If you say yes then you may just be
Someone as broken and as lost as me.
