Poem About Being Left Alone And Hurting

I wrote this because my best friend betrayed me, my boyfriend left me, and my mom didn't even have time to listen or see me as I fell into a deep darkness and nearly retreated to my cutting tendencies.

Pick Me Up


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2016 with permission of the Author.

I sit here wondering why I still breathe,
When pain consumes me and I'm dying.
You were supposed to be my support,
The one to hold me, not leave me alone.
Sitting now, my tears slip out of control.
I held it in so long, but no more.

You said you loved me,
You said you cared,
So why'd you leave me
In the middle of nowhere?
Like a fool waiting for you,
Believing your lies were true.

Nothing is left to do
As I fall into depression.
Deeper and deeper,
Further than rock bottom,
Holding on to hope you'll catch me,
When I know I'm just free-falling,

So come now, please come now.
At least pick up
The broken pieces of me
Piercing me in heart.
I need you fast,
And if you can't catch me,
At least pick me up.
