It could never be said you had nothing to do
In fact you are busy, made so by circumstance
I have watched you, head down bum up
Slaving away at your next task
You say it passes the day
But we both know it’s the escape
The place its better to be than
The harsh reality that awaits you.
You turn away at the suggestion of talk
You deny there is an issue
Pretend everything is good
When we know you hurt so much.
Inside you are a mess,
The demons are in your ear
Yell and scream at you
Decrying every move you make to
Put them in the places they deserve.
They are tearing you apart
Dissolving you before my eyes
And all I can do, day in day out
Is hang in here with you
Hold your hand
Tell you I love you
That I won’t abandon you
But be a constant in your life
Reaching into your soul
Showing you hope you think has vanished.
You will never be alone
While I am here.
