I can't keep picking up the broken pieces

You're stuck in the darkness.

I'm dragging you out.

You're pulling me in.

Into the unknown route.

 

The noises are coming.

They're swarming inside my head.

I wanna do so many things.

That may make me turn up dead.

 

The weight of your problems on top of my shoulders.

But I'm blocked off from solutions by two giant boulders.

Choices keep running all over the place.

But my feet won't move, I can't win the race.

 

I'm done watching you sink into the cold pit.

I'm done extending my hand just to watch you throw a fit.

I'm done having you pull me down there with you.

I'm done having to listen to you lie, just to get the truth.

 

Who careds what other people think?

They're not you; they don't care what you do.

You need to ignore; to just pushed them away.

But you just cut your wrists, and here I see you lay.

 

It's not changing a thing; I don't think you understand.

It's not making you better; you need to take a stand.

The hardships that you go through; they're hard I know.

But don't think you're the only one who has pain they need to show.

 

I can't afford to hurt myself more.

I can't afford to hold you up anymore.

You need to realize, it's gonna be this way your whole life.

And nobody will stand by you when you take out the knife.

 

I keep thinking it will come back; for you a normal life.

That maybe I won't keep having to pretend that you're still really my friend.

Because you just keep hurting me; using me like a pup.

I'm getting so tired; I have to stop holding you up.

 

I'm really very sorry; but you're hurting me every day.

Every hour, every minute, I'm trying to hide the pain.

But I stick with you, because I'm sure that it will mend.

But I just can't take it anymore; I can't keep being your friend.

Thanks very much twilightangel. Your comment means a lot. Yeah I usually write my best poems when I'm feeling that way, and I was feeling EXACTLY that way. I told her that today, and she understands. Thanks once again!

wow. just.. wow.

It's not changing a thing; I don't think you understand.

It's not making you better; you need to take a stand.

The hardships that you go through; they're hard I know.

But don't think you're the only one who has pain they need to show.

Hugs and kisses

I agree with everyone, it's really emotional and really almost sweet. I'm not sure if that's the best word to describe it but you must be a really good friend to go through all of that for so long! I hope that things turned out/will turn out OK!

Wow, I really liked that! I think we've all had people in our life like that that are constantly trying to pull us down or hold on to us. It's great that you could recognize how much their actions were affecting you!

This poem is taken from personal experience, I would surmise. The word flow is good throughout. Toward the middle and to the end some stanzas seem forced and wordy, easy problems to fix. Overall I liked your work and I'll look at more, thank you. rainy

:) Wow, this is really good. I like how you're putting another persons point of view perfectly which other people generally don't see. My friend self harmed, and I tried to to everything I could to help him, but it felt like he was ignoring me, and the way you wrote this poem is the exact way I felt. =] Well done. x]

wow this is very deep my kind of poem!:)This truly was unique and inspiring.I loved the way you rhymed in this poem and it all made sense and gave a very clear picture. i liked that line "And nobody will stand by you when you take out the knife" genius! Your feelings and emotion was the key to your poem and it was true that you felt that way then, i really love that.

Wow, I can totally relate. It's unbelievable, my situation right now is almost identicle. Not with the cutting, just with someone bringing me down and using me and not appreciating me. I wish I were as bold as you to just come out and say it, but I have to pretend instead. Great poem, very relateable and you can feel the emotions. I like it so much I think I'll become a fan! :)

YAY! Ha Ha I'm so glad that you enjoyed it so much to be my fan:) Honestly I don't believe it's one of my best poems, but I'm glad you think otherwise. You should tell her how you feel. I took my friend to the counselor and read her this poem. She got better about it. Good luck though with your friends:D Thanks so much for reading and commenting:)
