Say Something, But Darling, Not This

Chapter 1


When I come to you
Crying about the horrors
Of the depths of my mind
Say something
Say something that may calm me down
Not "It gets better."
I've heard that too much
Not "Stay strong."
Its not enough
Say something you know
Something that doesn't have bad effects
Don't say "Its just a phase"
"You'll get over it."
Or "You're not trying."
Don't ignore me
Or act like it doesn't matter
Don't say you don't care
And darling, I beg of you
Don't look at my fingernails
Which dig into my arms at night
Don't hear my thoughts
That haunt me every minute
Don't witness my helplessness
And then say "I'm giving up on you."
