Here I Am (Captivating)

I feel myself breaking
And falling down into
I know my heart can’t take anymore
Crying is pointless but so is

Yet here I stand
In front of your eyes
So paralyzed
Am I
And here you are
So close yet so
Out of

Ice cold blood
I feel it run through my
I hear it now
The sound so captivating
‘I’m here, I’m here’
I call into the
No response
Except the beat of my

Here I stand
On the edge of
Absolutely nothing
Yet here you are
Mouthing my name
Beckoning softly from the depths
Of the

A winding road
And a beaten
My eyes scan
This land you call
I see nothing to
Hold my attention
Nothing beautiful
To say the
I see all the shadows
I watch them rise up
Out of your

Here I am
Rising to nothing
Yet calling to something
And here you stand
So close yet I can’t feel
So far away
And I’m touching

‘Here I am, here I am’
Don’t look through
Those lonely eyes
I long to fall in
I long to survive
I need to survive
Help me survive

And here I stand
In front of your eyes
So paralyzed
Am I
And here you are
So close yet so
Out of
You have my heart
Though yours I’ll never have
To keep

Here I am
Here I’ll stay
Here you are
Stay for as long as needed
And I wont run
I wish I was
As captivating
As you
Now I’ll stay with those shadows
Stay with your shadows

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
