Bandaid - Poem by Amouta Stardancer

I'm not a bandaid,
a phone call,
won't fix anything.
Sweetie, I can't be superman,
no matter how much,
you're hurting,
in fact that's the time,
I'm stuck,
watching you burning.
Oh God, don't tell me,
he said that?
He's an ass,
oh no, but an ass,
that you love.
How is it so easy,
to follow you're heart,
smack into a wall?
Where's the self-preservation?
Where's that voice,
the one that should be screaming,
inside your brian?
Bandaid?
You need stitches sweetie,
come on, sit down,
dropp the blade,
that you're gripping,
so tight that you're bleeding.
If he's that way,
he's not worth it,
but of course he is, to you.
Can't cut the ties,
can't let him go,
cause he's got you,
by the heart,
and you never learned,
how to ask for it back.
So what do you do?
Anything he says,
that will bring him back to you.
And you want me,
to play bandaid,
and just make,
everything okay,
but I can't,
when he's hurting you.
I attack him,
you're the first in his defence,
because he's got,
your heart in front of him,
like a bullet-proof vest.
Come on sweetie, wake up,
can't you feel that you're bleeding?
You want your bandaid,
to stick him to you,
do you want me,
to stab the blade in your back too?
