Lying

Lying

A Poem by Caleb is typing...

*sweet dreams*
Caught up in the same things
I'm drowning in the deep
Can somebody catch me?

I'm in bed falling to pieces, I can barely sleep
I'm supposed to be falling asleep but I can barely think
Straight, all these voices in my mind are telling me I'm weak
I hear these voices every time I'm on familiar streets



You said you'd always be there for me, but then I found out you were lying
I'm lying in bed tonight, thinking on all these things, really just hating my timing
Sketching these memories, melodies, meanttobe's, out of my mind like I'm climbing
Up-and-up over all of these emotional cliffs, now I don't feel like I'm dying



But writing confessions is hard then living them
Forgiving people is hard when your broken
I think this pain has shaped me to a different man
Due to the fact that these words have been spoken

Letting go of someone who hurt you is hard
When helping is all that you're on earth to do
I want to give help till I break my own heart
But I would be lying if I want to help you...

I understand these words well, your poem is well written. You have captured many emotions into such few words yet it goes deeper than you believed.

"I hear these voices every time I'm on familiar streets"
"I want to give help till I break my own heart" - "I break my own heart"

These lines are powerful, emotional, and gold. tyfs
