Why does no one reach out to me?

By RedWolf

heart of gold, some would say
but its slowly melting away
glistening droplets dripping, fading
I am but masquerading

of myself I give to others
to aid the need of anothers
but why can't someone see
that no one reaches out to me

the mask I wear every day
keeps all the shadows at bay
when alone the facade slips
as my heart gradually rips

raising friends up from the ground
so their pain may be unbound
but why can't anyone really see
I need someone to reach out to me

spirally, descending down
have a care or I may drown
barely beating within my chest
a heart frozen inside my breast

lost and alone amidst the crowd
burdened by my heavy cloud
desperate for someone to see
for them to reach out to me

    May you find the friend or lover that you seek; whatever the case might be. Sounds to me like you are a giver for all the takers to abuse. Make some time for yourself RW and welcome to DP. Cheers! - Dan
