I Guess This Is A Cry For Help

I Guess This Is A Cry For Help

A Poem by laughinglullaby

I just need a savior
I can feel this noose tighten around my neck
And yet with my last breath 
All I ask is for someone to say I love you too one last time.
Burning down bridges is what I do best
Maybe I find it hard to live without a fire trailing me.
Maybe the fire is set in hopes that someone may fallow it
That they won't be afraid to put it out and help me build something new. 
I'm my own prosecutor.
I've made myself the damsel in distress.
I'm the one who held myself under
As I was gasping for breath.
I don't understand why I'm my biggest fear
And more importantly why loosing myself doesn't frighten me at all.
I want you to save me 
Because I'm on my last leg
I'm standing on this sidewalk
With one foot in the grave.
I'm not asking for a superhero 
Or any hero at that 
i'm just asking for a somebody,
Just a somebody who will ask for me back.
I'm not saying you have to be prince charming
Cause I sure as hell am not Cinderella.
I just need a savior
To save me from myself.

Lovely poem, your really a Cinderella and I hope, your prince charm'll soon steal you from you from you nights making you his stunning bride :P

Whao...i've got that this poem's written in 2013 on 8th. April and today's 4th. April 2014 which means, it's been approximately one year since you penned something creative. Whao! Amazing! I'd now love to read some more stuffs of beautiful Cinderella :)

desperation..that's what i have thought that this poem is trying to convey...it's desperation for savior to save her...and with that i think you have done a good job in trying to express an idea..an idea of what is like losing yourself and what you need someone who will save you in your misery.

This is my life make of it what you will. Theses are my thoughts think of them how you will. If you're a dreamer dare to dream with me. If you're a believer then sympathize with me. Be who you are and.. more..
