Promise Me

Promise me
That you won't say my name
For if you do
You'll take the blame

Promise me
You'll be there
When the burdens too much
For me to bare

Promise me
I'm not the only one
That wants to hide
Wants to run

Promise me
You'll pull the trigger
If my fears
Get much bigger

Promise me
I'll die in peace
And all the pain
Will finally cease

Promise me
The blade is too dull
To make the tears
Finally null

Promise me
That you'll hide the rope
So I dont hang
On a tiny thread of hope

Promise me
The pills are locked away
So that I may live
To see another day

Promise me
You'll dry my tears
And clean the pieces
Of the shattered mirrors

Promise me
That I'm like the others
With perfect lives
And no bothers

Promise me
That it's all the same
The story will flare
With a minor flame

Promise me
That if I died
I would be
The perfect suicide

    Beautiful simply beautiful. Liked the rhyme scheme and above all the feel of this write. Touching and moving composition. Structured well too. Terrific write.

    This poem is very strong in imagery; i like it, but i worry about the potential suicide. It would be horrible if encouragement of a dark poem led to someone's death...
