Facing Fears… [POEM]

please mind my noise,
stay through my quiet
feel where i have grown numb
calm down my riot

with me

ignore that i know so much
expect of me the same
hide my truth within your powers,
just take away my pain

love me like you know any better
find me worth the work
stay sound amidst the rage of current
until hurting you starts to hurt

forgive that i ain’t like they wasn’t
sort of a same kind of different
talk me through to the other side
pretend that i don’t listen

have pity on a broken soul
that lost it’s way before
give time a chance to make me better
and help me to the door.
