Help Me.

Help Me.

A Poem by kij143

This is not based off of an actual event, it was inspired by "I Love the Way you Lie" By Eminem, and Rhiannah. It's pretty dark, but I was trying to capture simple, but heavy emotion.


 Blood is dripping off the knife

I love you enough to give you my life.

I look around, at this clutter this mess,

the anger, the fighting, the worry and distress.

The screaming, yelling, the anger, the fights,

Nothing seems real, nothing seems right.

But I need you to be with me, need to hear your voice, and feel your touch,

I look down at your picture, which tightly I clutch.

There on my wrist, a velvet stream

this isn't what happened, it's not as it seems.

Passion consumes us, Now it's too late to fight

Induldging, and overconsumed, forgetting my fright.

The anger and passion, too weak to walk away,

I feel strong when we're fighting, but I'm weak for I stay.

It was you of whom I chose to confide,

But now I sit here, too many times have I lied.

Now he's gone, the only things left are these scars, his mark.

I was addicted the fire, I tried to set a spark.

I long for his lips to brush against mine, make me forget of the pain

Our mingling touch, like fire to rain.

Now he is gone, and alone here i hide

I promised I'd be strong, I promised, I lied.

I love you enough to give you my life,

I started to cry, as I looked for the knife. </3

Lovely, Kaitlyn. Dark and deep and you did a wonderful job capturing an emotion that, as far as you've told me, you've never felt.

That is too much love when you need a knife to make someone happy. In real life abuse and pain cannot be allowed. If they showed the poor woman who lived in fear and must live in abuse. Song wouldn't be so good. I taught my three daughter never allow a man to hit you. They would have a safe place with me always. A powerful poem. Woman need safe houses for them to find safety and protection.
