Be My Escape - Poem by Ariel Miles

You are the only thing keeping me from jumping
you're keeping me from screaming
from going crazy
cutting my wrists
banging my brains out
stabbing myself
shooting myself
suffocating myself...
That's why I love you...
you talk to me
comfort me
make me laugh
make me feel good
make me whole
you complete me
make me strong
make me proud
& I need you
I love you
But who are you?
What are you?
Where are you?
I wish you were here
I need you here
to 'Be My Escape'
from a suicidal fate
