Poem Asking Friend To Trust You

I have really close friends that are afraid of opening up because of the life that they lived. This is for them in the hope that they can one day open up.

After I knew the person you showed the world,
I searched for the person you are.
He was nowhere around
Where was he to be found?
Behind the person you wear?
Can I see you without him there?

There are walls set up
Life has never let up
They have saved you in the past
The area they cover is vast.

If only I could spend sometime in your mind
Then I could truly see what makes you one of a kind
But, I'd rather you be able to open up and tell me
The door has been locked from the world, you see?

I want to be the key to your sanctuary
Let go of the hardships that you no longer need to carry
I will share in the weight
I will take it off your plate

Do you know how it feels to be able to share in pain?
For someone to be there throughout the strain.
I know you don't want to bother loved ones
When I want to help, that is no reason to run

I want you to feel the serenity that comes from trust
Life does not always have to be unjust
So let go and fall into me
I'll be here forever, you'll see.
