Lifeline

I’ve often heard the siren song
of self destruction and I longed
to end it all

It’s not to hurt the ones I love
It’s just myself, I can not trust

My mind says things which are not true
My heart gets lost inside the blue

est black of dark
est night, while I search
and search to find the light

to feel some warmth, to believe in love
I look up to the skies above

Go tell someone, he says to me
It’s not your fault that you can’t see

So I’m writing this down
to throw out a rope - It’s all
trite with rhyme, but I still hope

it reaches us in time. To convince you, too
that though we’re blind. We are never alone.

I’m still out here - I’m climbing up
Let’s make this work; just don’t give up

Together, we
can reach
the top
