I know you need help.
It's so plain to see.
Please don't hurt yourself.
You can count on me.

I'll hold you when it's tough,
wrap you up tight.
I know life is rough,
but I'll be your light.

I love you, I do.
You're everything to me.
you don't believe it's true,
but I want to set you free.

I'll be your rock
when all your strength is gone.
I'll be your lock
when everythings gone wrong.

So please don't cry,
my love, my life.
I know you want to die,
but I'll help you through the strife.

Because I'll be there to catch you
when everything falls apart.
I love you, it's so true,
with all of my heart.
Allow me to explain one line, "I'll be your lock" you see, my whole life I've always had this sort of weightless feeling, like I'm not really here at all, and I've always wanted something that would "lock" me into reality for a little while. Okay, now an explanation for the poem itself. It's a love poem.......to myself? Alright, I had this dream the night before I wrote this where I had tried to commit suicide, and I was now in a rehab clinic, and my boyfriend came to see me, and he writes me poems every now and then, and in the dream, this is the poem he wrote for me. So basically i subconciously wrote myself a love poem.....wow right? Anyway, I think it's pretty good considering that it is exactly, EXACTLY, down to the very last word, the poem from the dream, so yeah, for a poem that was constructed while I was in lala land, I think it's pretty good, so noone give me any crap about it, alright? love you guys!

I love to read your lala land poetry. It has so much meaning and the power of your words it's enough to keep the most hopeless going

Thank you very much. That's probably fifty-five percent of the reason I write it.

No thanks needed. You dedicate time to give the weak, the strength they need to hold on to life and live as long as God intended them to live.

I really like your poem!

(what's funny is that I was srolling through the comments and I saw that my friend, Sabrina, had also seen this and it was cool because I didn't know that I had clicked random deviation..... her icon is :iconlynn-10397:, but anyways, your poem is very beautiful, and the same thing had happened to me last night only mine is a completely different topic, I am a somewhat antisocial person and so talking to people isn't the easiest thing in the world and I hate taking risks and I had gotten the nerve to take a risk and it somewhat backfired and yea..... stupid me thinking it would work out, if you want to read mine, here [link] )

I completely forgot how to finish my one thought about my poem :XD: so I was trying to sleep and a thunder storm was going on and then suddenly I am just hearing these words playing through my thoughts and I had to wake up and write the poem so I wouldn't forget.

Beautiful poem. Perhaps it is you letting yourself know that you do love yourself. Sometimes I think we need to be reminded of that, or even recognize that we need to love ourselves.

"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." ~ Buddha

Just something to keep in mind :hug:

Anyway, really great poem. I hope you are able to overcome the struggles you experience in your life :)

I like your lock thing, it makes a lot of sense.
And sometimes dreams are awesome - you should take note of the words you spoke to you.

yes, wow thats pretty awesome actually.

lol i wasnt planning on giving you crap , i swear! ( crossed fingers)

i think that you shouldnt use the fact that it was inspired directly from your dream as a bad thing because most of the writing artists have are from the subconscious mind (at least this is my belief) and the fact that you acknowledge that means your aware of yourself, to remember the exact words of a dream is pretty difficult.

i think that you are telling y ourself what you think you need to hear because you feel like something is missing and theres a lack in your life. you know you need to appreciate yourself more and this poem is you telling you that you know you are awesome ( if that makes any sense at all). this is (possibly) an affirmation of the secret words you hold in your heart but never knew until now. you unlocked the key to balance in your heart. at least i think you have a good start :D

1) You tried to commit suicide? Or was that just part of your dream?
2) I'm jealous! You actually dream =(... All I do is just... nightmare or blackout =P...
3) Damn good memory you got there then! I can't wait to see what else your sub-conscious boyfriend aspect of your mind decides to compose =)
4) "I'll be your rock" made me do a double-take, cause the first thing I thought of was "The Rock" and just kinda derped out for a second or two :XD:

1) I did, but the dream was not based off that time, and I've never been to rehab.
2)This was kinda a nightmare, after he recited the poem I tried again, died, went to hell, nightmares are a bitch.
3)Thank you =)
4) I have so many blonde moments in a day, science had to create a new, longer way to count, don't worry about it =P

If you don't mind, I'll get a little scientific/philosophical on you. What you experienced in your dream as "death" was the remembering of your worst pain, adapted by your mind to depict as best it could the concept of "death," since the mind cannot completely comprehend the absence of a conscious.

Otherwise, glad to know I'm not the only one with blonde moments =P!
And in other news: I'm not especially glad someone else is in the previous-attempts suicide boat with me, but I hope you find/found something worthwhile =)!
