Hello and welcome!!!
Poem Title and Poem
DROWNING (A LETTER)
Don’t let your tears drown you in loneliness
Cry me a river is not just an expression to you
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
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.
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.
About a week to write because I wanted to really pour all my emotions onto the page
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.
