Hope.


You are a friend
in a strange place.
In a crowd of people
you are a familiar face

You are a light
in a dark room.
You are the sun
that helps flowers bloom

You gave me happy thoughts
when all i knew was doom.
You protect me...
like a baby in a womb

You saved my life
when I wanted to die.
you always held me
when I thought I would cry

You made me feel loved...
you made me understand
when I was confused
you held my hand

I wish I could do the same
I wish I could help you too
but I guess I'm just a f*** up
through and through

I want to make you better
but I only make you worse
I guess I can only help you
once I'm laying in a hearse

You gave me hope
now I'm giving you some
once I'm gone, think
of everything you can become

I'll leave you a note
tied onto my rope
where I hang by my neck
'Don't ever lose hope'

    Hi Jess. I really like this poem. It slightly reminds me of myself last year when me and my boyfriend at the time split up. I felt so low. I couldn't eat or feel like anyone really understood what was happening. I'm getting there now though. Don't ruin life when you can see and feel so much more. (Report) Reply

    No, stop Jassica! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! yet a crime against a soul, no right to commit such heinous job, since your love as reasoned would certainly be taken care by Him, just simply believe it, the love may be knocking at your door, have a patience (Report) Reply
