The Fear of Drowning

I really needed a friend to hear me speak.
I am feeling vulnerable down and weak.
My voice is shaky my skin feels cold
I feel as if I’m in this world all alone.
I just needed someone to take the time to listen
I wasn’t trying to cause any undue stress, unnecessary grief or friction.
If only you could have given me a minute of your time
Maybe then I would be ok and feel my life would be just fine.
When you get turned away by another at your weakest point
You feel as if you do nothing but go on to disappoint.
I just needed you to lend me your ear.
Just to take a few seconds so that you could hear.
I’m dying inside and you don’t even know,
That sometimes I would rather give up and just let go.
Each day that goes by gets a little harder.
The walls are caving in I thought I was so much smarter.
I don’t ask for much but when I do,
I would hope for once you might pick up on the clue.
You know I’m tough and would rather do without,
Then to ask for help or accept even the smallest handout.
Why is it then when all I need for you to do,
Is to stop and listen as I cry out to you.
I fear I am about to slip down under to deep.
I need you to hear my fear I’m about to sink.
Is your life so busy you can’t stop and see.
I’m reaching out because I need you to be there for me.

i think nobody really saves anyone from drowning if the person wants to drown, why we reach out to somebody to hear us? why we always look for happiness in others? lets just be that light which shines alone. Though i loved the way you have written this, it made me so curious to ask you whats the inspiration for this post? if you want to share 🙂
