You should knowA Poem by Ashley Jordan
What do I do?
What should I say?
How do I act when you push me away?
Your anger, frustration, depression and rage
have me backed in the corner, I'm locked in a cage.
And across the room from me.
It's the same for yourself.
It's a shame.
I feel I'm the one to blame
even when I'm not.
You won't open up, I don't know what to do!
Retaliate or cooperate?
How do I comfort you?
That's all I want.
Because your wave of emotions pulls me under too.
It drowns me and chokes me until I become blue...
In the face,
just talking to you and and the brick walls you encase-
I need to understand.
to realize the struggles you are facing.
I only wish to take your pain.
To ease it.
You should know,
you never have to be alone.
You're the only one forcing yourself
down this road.
