POEM DAY 4

Hello and welcome!!!

Poem Title and Poem


DROWNING (A LETTER)

Tears

Don’t let your tears drown you in loneliness

Cry me a river is not just an expression to you

It’s reality

You feel suffocated by the pressure and expectation

The ones you know you can’t meet

Don’t let the pressure get to you

Don’t give up

Deafen your ears to those who say others have it worse

I understand

Pain is not comparable

‘It hurts’ is all that matters

If you decide to leave no one will go with you

I want you to stay with me because you are my friend

You are my friend

I will not die with you

But I will go to hell and back to save you

Do you want to leave me in pain?

By running away from your pain

You want your pain to end

I understand but

I can’t know you are sinking

If you don’t yell for help

It is also my fault that I didn’t look out for you

But don’t give up on me because I love you

I hope my love is not suffocating

Cause I can take a step back to make you comfortable

You are not alone, remember that

You have us

Raise a hand so I know you need help

I would run to you, to save you

As saving you means also saving myself from pain

Do not leave me in pain

Cause I might drown along with you

Save me from drowning by calling for help

I will run to you.

Inspiration

A few years back (I think 3 years ago) I had this friend who was really having a tough time (I was struggling too) and she said to me “when does this pain stop?” It got me so worried and stressed, especially since she was moving away and it seemed to her like she had no one. This was the letter I wrote for her and slipped into her bag before she left.


.

Duration

About a week to write because I wanted to really pour all my emotions onto the page


.

Interpretation

It’s tough, it hurts, it’s sad but remember that someone is out their that loves you. Giving up doesn’t just hurt you but everyone who is around you.
