Closed - Poem by Elizabeth Castleberry

Open up to me my dear
I'm here for you always
You have nothing to fear

You are not alone in the abyss
Let me help you through this maze
I can cure your loneliness

You sacrifice everything for a friend
You risk your own life
You've reached a dead end

The pressure is immense
You reach for a knife
You're at your last defense

If you're always the hero
Who's saving you?
What if all of this amounts to zero?
