Save Me from Myself

Save Me from Myself

A Poem by Matt "Mickey" Denney

Help me, this I pray
Lest without I die
Thy choice alone to save me
Choose not against

Shattered apart inside
This furious passion afire
Melts me away from substance
Stitch together my soul

Alone I lay and suffer
No love, nor care from another
Alone am I in this world
And none to place trust

Reach out and touch me
Grab my hand and hold
Pull me to grace
Save me from myself...

Save me

Another great read. Intense feelings just washed over me and I read it I kinda wanted to save you myself. But as E.L. said, you are never alone.

Loved it, seriously!

I need someone to save me from myself off and on so i know the feelings. Very well expressed and well written

Remember here you're never alone.
I feel you on this one, deeply.

I shall not save you from yourself,
As you're here and I respect, the awareness already
More at the time you wrote this.
You're a brilliant poet/ singer song writer!!!! ♫

This was very well expressed. I love the flow and the imagery in this song. The words speak of despair that so many feel even myself. The words are very haunting to me.

Love this. Save me from myself. Yes, I can relate to your words here and have an appreciation for showing weakness. Weakness shown just proves to be strength. Good write.

Great! I love the way you used the words in here. The language is just enough to give me the images of loneliness and yes, despair. Save Me from Myself. A true enough title. A good enough poem for one's own greatest battle; battling yourself. You've done well and your lyrics are good, I hope I can hear its sound as I read the lines anew. ;)

sounds like despair. however there is hope in the end in that there seems to be someone there who could save you. it would be a nice song, and an awesome one to hear on acoustic guitar.
