“I can keep a secret and throw away the key…

Ghost

~

Tell me what is wrong…

Tell me what’s on your mind…

I know you’re not OK…

Please, please stop crying…

You know you can talk to me…

You know you’re safe in here…

Tell me all your dreams…

And confide all your fears…

I promise I can help you…

We’ll take it at your pace…

You can open up to me…

I’ll wipe the tears from your face…

Between us we can mend you…

Put the pieces back together…

Take the weight off your back…

You’ll feel lighter than a feather…

I’ll help you to be strong…

Just put your trust in me…

I’ll guide you from this dark place…

And help your eyes to see…

Are you listening to me…

Please, please don’t turn away…

I’ve been where you are now…

I’ve faced my darkest day…

I know what you are going through…

I’ve been through this before…

But I didn’t handle it well…

They picked me up off the floor…

And carried my lifeless body…

As I watched from high above…

Singing with the angels…

Flying high with the doves…

But they won’t allow me further…

Not until I try to help you…

Can you hear my words…

This is what I have to do…

Because I’m stuck in limbo…

Floating in the wind and rain…

You have to let me do this…

Please release me from my pain…

Can you hear me…

Are you listening…

Please…

Please…

  1. Wow! What a way two bring two perspectives together J. You read it as if they were always that way… one suicide and yet you almost don’t even see it, only for a second… but in that second a huge punch. Just wow..excellent. I love it, weaves perfectly. xx Cheers, Alex

  2. Wow! I started reading and was like “This is a brilliant poem; feels very safe and sweet – Where is the twist?” And of course, then the twist came – and the poem became even more brilliant!!! Well done, J. Love it! ❤
