You Don't Know

You Don't Know

A Poem by redalia

about when you need help but nobody listens, and how people in your life disappear because you're not "well"


someone’s chimed in,

how out of the ordinary!

hello, you, hello.

you’re here to listen?

oh, good, how lovely! 

how extraordinary!

someone’s listening…

I, um--

I don’t feel

very good. 

it’s been--

it’s been a while.

but you’re here now!

which is--

which is nice!

hello, you, 


there’s this feeling 

you know, like 

this feeling…

you know how you feel like 

you’re like the only one on their own, and 

everybody’s held hands before, and 

everyone’s holding hands!

they’re all hand in hand, and

they all see in color, and, I mean--

you’re stuck holding your own hand, you know?

it really



it sucks.

and there’s this thing where--

you know how you need someone to h-

to help you but--

thank you, i truly appreciate your review!
what i find true sometimes is that friends are there when you are there to listen to them...or give of yourself to them...but when it is the other way around, they disappear or feel burdened..
makes one hesitant to ask for help or for others to listen...they may disappear.
