A Letter To Him - Poem by Jenny Foisy

Will you reach me before I breathe my last breathe
We are never together
Never falling at the same time
Always apart
The distance between us is just enough that you can destroy me
But be too far to catch me
I’m tired of falling
I want to be caught
I want to feel safe
I feel so naked
So completely vulnerable
I feel so empty
You’ve taken everything that is important to me and said it was a lie
That we were a lie
I just want to be back in those lies
Back in that safety
Back in your arms
I don’t care if it’s unreal
Because reality is killing me
I can’t breathe
Can’t sleep
Can’t exist without you
But I can not simply be with you thinking your love for me is a lie
I beg you for emotion
I just want to see you
To fall for who you are
I’m begging for you to find me
You’ve woven a web of deceit around me so sick I can not escape it
I don’t know where you are
I do not know where I am
I can not see what is real
My whole life feels like one giant lie
I need you to find me
I need you to rescue me
I need to know you still care
Still love me
I need to know we’re worth fighting for
I need to see any emotion you have
To know you’re real
To know we’re real
Simple gestures are to easy to replicate
I need something unique
Not words or thoughts stolen from anyone but your heart
Not thoughts drawn out
Not things purchased
I need you
And only you
Pure emotion
I need to know you’re still here
That we’re still here
Without that I am nothing
Without that we are nothing
Why is it me putting my feelings down with no filler, no excuses, just me
Completely vulnerable me
When I feel I could break at any instant
With any word
I feel I could shatter
And you would not notice
