Can anyone save me?

If You Can

The stars fade into the distance.
The moon sinks into the hollows of hell.
Hold me as the world falls away.
Be my savior as tomorrow will seemingly never come.
Unholy as I have been
Always failing in all but sin
I have damned only myself.
Be my angel in this desolate end.
Be my shield against the storm.
The fires are raging where only my much loved shadows once lay.
I have slain my own heart and shattered its soul.
Be my bridge that spans the river Styx.
Be my faith that parts the sea.
I drown in misery, and
I flail against all else.
The tears I shed
The blood that my veins spill
Soak the cold hard earth
Feeding the hate I need.
Be my hangman’s noose.
Be my gallows at dawn.
Be my prison.
Be my release if you can.

5: Wow!


  Wow, This was deep and emotional. I could feel the pain and despair as I read it. I think that this is a wonderful poem of longing and wanting relief. The powerful words of the poem sent shivers down my spine. I don't think there is anything I would change about this. Good job and keep it up. You are a good writer. Also, I hope that the feeling you felt when you wrote this have been taken away. I hope someone was able to save you!

  This is so heart wrenching. You can feel the dispair as you read it. The only problem i have with it is the last line...i dont like the "if you can" at the end. or mabye if it was turned around , 'If you can, be my release. ' I dont know just a suggestion.

  OKAY, here's your release

Come from the darkside, how you arrive there is not important...
You make this poem sound like a message in a bottle from someone abandoned, or self-abandoned on an island of loneliness...
Hope this is your imagination and creative juices overflowing..
Maybe someone else can identify with you in their poetry....check them out..
I really like that you put it out there from the island for people to read and release you, if they can

Keep writing...keep feeling
