somebody real

before I fall,

catch me quick,

watch me stumble
and lend me a hand

amidst the dark

but if your need to stay
is governed by pity
i ask you to
Leave.

don’t look back,
don’t offer me an olive branch
and tell me you got me
when all i’m looking for

is a little faith.
please don’t
corrupt
and blur the lines
between reality
and the fantasy you
hold in your mind
that i’ve been
barred from
seeing.

before i fall
catch me quick;
catch the tears
and catch the painful words
lodged in my throat
but if you want
to see me live
but not let me breathe
please
let me fall,
don’t give me your heart
for it doesn’t
truly belong to
me
please let me fall –

i’m just looking for somebody real.
