Who's Gonna Save Me?

Who’s Gonna Save Me?
Date: December 28,2011

Who do you think will save me
When I fall from your eyes
Will there be a revelation
When at last, the cup runs dry

I know that I’m not yours
No more than you are mine
I have no right to claim your smile
Though the thought assaults my mind

I have no claim to love
And affection you’d never give
I have no right to be upset
I’ve just the right to live

So hold me not tomorrow
Neath the blanket of your shame
So easy just to walk away
And leave the way you came

Can’t you see I’m drowning
From the weight of your disdain
Just let me mend the pieces
So I’ll feel whole again

Release me from the sorrow
That dwells within my heart
And help me please to understand
The meaning of the sparks

This fire that burns between us
Was never warm or kind
It burns with a deception
That torments my heart and mind

Now I’ve got a hole in me
That your lust could never fill
The passion that I feel for you
Was more than “just for thrills”

Poem of the Day

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,
