Despair

by Scrittore   May 10, 2018


My despair is mine alone
Don't tell me how to grieve
Don't tell me to be positive
It has no place for me
When life's toils swell
When your lungs can no longer breathe
Don't pretend you understand
It has no place for me
I do not need optimistic words
"There's hope for another day"
Leave me to my misery
Leave me to my pain
My despair is mine alone
Don't tell me how to grieve
If you want to help then do it by
Simply sitting here with me
Take my hand or wrap your arms
Tightly around and know
That I will get through this
My pain, my grief, my woes

    Nicely written. The refrain was used to good effect.
