Tonights not the night

Tonights not the night

A Poem by Symphonic_Sunflowers

dont die tonight, just stay one more night.

Hold on tight, dont turn off that light,

please hold on with all of your might.


I know its hard, and i know youre sad,

but please dont go and drive me mad.


"Why did he do it, oh why oh why" theyll cry,

and im the only one wholl know why.


Please stay, one more night,

hold on with all of your might.


I know that i say this every night,

but please, oh please hold on tight.


I know everyone says it and its getting old,

but youre the greatest person i know.


So, i may be being selfish,

for saying this so,

but please dont go,

oh no.


Dont give into the dark, do not feed the shame, i know its hard for you,

to feel the same.


I know youre broken, and you cant find your pieces,


but please, give me some time, to find them,

to help piece you together again.


Just stay one more night,

please keep up the fight,

for i believe in your might.


Dont turn out the light,

dont give up the fight,

for i believe in you with all of my might.

i really liked this piece...probably because i can relate to the feelings shared from both the speaker and the subject. yes, it is harsh but i think it packs a punch and a powerful message.

Why do you think its harsh?
Reading the first three lines and and last three lines, a person could almost picture themselves standing on the sidelines of a football game listening to a cheer leaders chant. Hey, hey, whatta' ya say; take that ball the other way. I know this is a very serious topic, and I feel the readers can sense the emotional urgency you must have gone through to produce it. I'm no expert in the art of writing, so who am I to give advice. Having said that, I think if you clean this up a tad, you'll have something really special. Thanks for sharing.
