You Don’t Have to Suffer Alone

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Do you ever stop and take the time,

To peruse the forsaken holes you've dug,

Those chasms that hold your scars and trauma,

I want to know, do you ever?


Do you ever toss and turn,

As you lie awake alone at night,

The light of the moon illuminating a lover's absence,

I desire to know, do you ever?


Do you ever choose to sink and drown,

Beneath the waves of your own lonesome envy,

Mourning the ghosts of friends long lost,

I must know, do you ever?


Do you ever blame yourself,

For all of your failures unforeseeable,

The individuals who spat on you when you were down,

I yearn to know, do you ever?


Do you ever realize that you aren't alone,

Your suffering is not endured without company,

All you must do is reach out for help,

I demand to know, do you ever want to be saved?
