Don't Let me Fall

I'm slipping away...

Top Story - January 2023

Laying low in the shadows...

I staggered while trying to walk through the Darkness...

My Anxiety turned into fear, And I Became someone else...

I'm hoping for you...

While reaching out to another...

Anyone who can Give me Desires...

I want to Love but can I be Loved?

I hungered, for so long, and I had forgotten what it was...

When I'm at my lowest,

Will you at least pick me up?

When I have no Balance...

Will you at least be my crutch?

Don't let me fall...

Please just hold onto me...

I'm slipping away...

Don't let me fall...

I ran around in circles

Inside a world unknown...

How could my once ago Soft heart, Turn into stone...

Don't let me go!

Can you keep me humble,

When My mind is filled with Drama?

I'm on the edge of surfing,

But I don't know about swimming...

All I know is that I Like the Colors of the water...

But what happens when I Fall over...

Will you catch me before I Fall under...

Can you Dive deep?

Will you rescue me?

From my Risky curiosity...

Don't let me Fall...

Please just hold onto me...

I'm slipping away...

Don't let me fall...

I know you'll keep me safe...

Precisely when I thought I was falling into The Deep...

You put me on the float!

    "Can you keep me humble, When My mind is filled with Drama?" This whole poem is quite musical (and lyrical of course) but these lines absolutely shout out for attention. Fabulous work!

    The poem beautifully captures the feelings of fear and vulnerability, while highlighting the importance of having someone to lean on during difficult times.

  • Veronica Coldironabout a year ago

    I absolutely loved the part about surfing and not diving in. Lord knows I've done plenty of that, looking at something I want so much to do, and for whatever reason am so afraid that I don't deserve it... that I never jump. GREAT poem! ;)
