Hold onto me

TRB/ February 4, 2018/ Blogging/ 2 comments

It’s cold here, it’s getting harder to sleep;

Each coming day gets harder, it’s getting easier to weep.

My shoulders hurt, troubles weigh me down;

While the past runs circles around me, going round and round.

Is there a guiding light? One that can show me the way;

To a happy tomorrow? Anywhere better than this day?

The loss of want, of need, of love;

I’ve searched for help from everyone except up above.

Lessons learnt in the sun and the rain;

Do a great job of helping me mask the pain.

I’ve longed to get back to the life before;

Where I had someone, now they’re all part of lore.

The tears have dried up, but the tracks remain;

Under the laughs, under the smile, that’s such a strain.

I miss the arms I used to hold on to, they seem so distant;

I miss the heart I used to cling on to, it seems non-existent.

Each cigarette numbs the pain in this very weak heart;

Each drag killing it little by little, part by part.

My body can take the beating, it will make it through the war;

But my heart is drowning, failing to even wash up ashore.

The ledge is right there, I visit it every day;

But heights scare me and only heighten the despair.

What’s the use of being in a world where love is no more?

What’s the use of being in a world where trusting each other is kept as score?

Someday I’ll get over my fear of heights;

Someday I’ll try and forget everything that give me the frights.

I hope that when I have the courage to step on that ledge, looking down;

I turn around to see the life I leave behind;

The life for which I’ve tried to fight for and grind.

That when I put my arms out, there’s someone to hold on to me;

Pull me back and tell me that I need to be.

Tell me that the tears were worth it and pain was fine;

Tell me that I had love and that they were all mine.
