Nobody Cares

Rating: 4.5
Feeling a little down, like nobody cares
Another day goes on, another silent tear
I cry for what’s forgotten, for what I left behind
I cry for a life once lived, a life that’s so unkind
But in my times of need, I had people that were there
And in this time I seek, someone that will care.

For again I stand alone, no longer tall and straight
I don’t know what to do, to make this all okay
I just know that I’m struggling, to make it through each day
And those I love it seems to me, I’ve pushed them away
Again I stand alone, in this hour of need
Nobody is there this time, nobody to come and save me

I’ve plummeted once again, so deep I can’t be found
No one is close enough, that my screams can make a sound
No one can hear my cries, from below the earth I scream
Someone save me from this place, someone let me free
I’m dying here alone, full of drugs and booze
Who else here cares, if this fight to life I lose

I close my eyes and the world, it swirls all around me
And I think if I succumb to this, I can finally be free
For I have spent all of my friends, and watched them go on by
There’s no one here left to care, there’s no one by my side
And if I chose now not to live, do you think that I would care
Because in this hour of need I seek, but I have no one that’s there

A nice poetic imagination, Tahnee. You may like to read my poem, Love and Lust. Thanks

This poem reminds me of a poem I wrote called Capsule of Grief, about loss. Feelings are very close in both your poem and mine. Kind of surprised me. RoseAnn

Many can relate to this sentiment about loneliness, but life is short so let us make the best of it! Well-penned!
