This is for the broken

By LifeIsComplicatedPainIsSImple

When every tears been shed,
And every pleas been said.
You've broken every dream,
But can't find the words to scream.
When nothing feels okay,
And you suffer through each day.

When you close your eyes each night,
Praying god will take your life.
You've lost all sight of hope,
And can't find a way to cope.
When you've lost count of your fears,
Yet can't find your hidden tears.

When your scars define your life,
And you wan't to take your kinfe,
And make the final cut.
I know how you feel but-
Every storm comes to end.
Don't lie, you need a friend!
So talk to me tonight,
I'll help you through your fright.

So open up your eyes,
And shed your happy disguise.
Wipe that fake smile off your face,
I know your hurting with such grace.
But you need to see,
You don't have to lie for me.
You don't have to feel complete,
But hang in there at least.

Let your lungs keep breathing air,
You are broken,
But not beyond repair.
When you want to die,
But can't seem to cry.
Remember life isn't meant to be fair.
l know how it feels to hurt,
Be stomped into the dirt.
But hold onto your life,
And let go of that knife.

    By the time I got to the end of this poem, I almost started crying. I didn't know if they were tears of understanding or sadness. It's probably both. Every word you speak is true, I'm glad you posted this.

    After reading several of your works, I decided that it was best if I read one a day. That way I could have something to look forward to. Needless to say, I was really moved by this. It embodies all that I want out of life. I thank you for posting this.

    This makes me very happy. All my life I have associated with the word "broken" for many of these same reasons. Through hell and back, I always felt I had no one to talk to or that I just couldn't talk at all for fear of losing what I held dear. But it's okay to let it out, especially to someone who cares, a good friend. I can sense a kindness in you. Thanks for posting.

    I'm glad you enjoyed. I understand how you feel about being able to talk to people, l tend to be overly paranoid and secretive. But l have found out if l tell the right person they can be more understanding then you'd think. Still, old habits die hard and l don't think ill ever exactly be a open book but i'm working on it. If you ever need to vent sometimes ir's easier talking to a stranger because their's noboy they can tell

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's such a delicate topic, and it was difficult to combine realism and hope into the same piece, but l hope it didn't seem overly cheery or too dark to do any good. If you ever need to talk just ask
