Help Me Understand

Help Me Understand

A Poem by Moth Phoenix

This is dedicated to my boyfriend, who despite his indiscretions, I still love him...


Help me understand,

was it all a mistake?

Should I have listened to them? 

Or was my own thought good? 

I was heartbroken and you caused it. 

Should I have let you go? 

I can't help loving you, you're amazing.

But if these are your true colors…

I think I want out. 

I am always there for you,

but you can't see it. 

I love you,

but do you really know? 

I would do anything for you,

do you know that? 

I lie awake at night and cry,

Baby do you know what you did? 

Do you have any idea the pain you put me through.

That night, that one night, I wanted to end it.

I saw the gun in hand, the noose ready, and the razors sharpen,

I wanted to die. 

All I want to do is please you.

It hurts me to know you can't accept it.

Why baby, why? 

You mean the world to me,

I'd buy you the moon if I could. 


Don't lie

Don't cheat




and help me understand,

understand why I can't let you go.

I'm the most angelically demonic girl you will ever meet. I'm rarely on here, but now that I've gotten back into the swing of things, I'll probably lurk a lot more. more..
