I Wasn’t Given Any Instructions Either

I know you’re looking

To me for help

But I am just

As clueless myself


I’m Sorry

It hurt
to see
the pain
in your
eyes

I felt
every
ache
of your
heart

If only
I could
ease the
anguish
you feel

But
I’ve no
wisdom
left to
impart

‘Help Is On The Way, Dear’

Tea

She said

Is that it?

Don’t you have anything stronger

I’ll have a look in the back

He said

But it might take a little longer


Stiff Upper Lip

I
feel
so
sad

She
said

Can
you
help
me?

I’ll
certainly
try

He
said

Here’s
some
tea

Weight Off Your Shoulders

I hope that now

You’re away from me

You are enjoying

Your life carefree

I hope you don’t

Think of me

For I’m standing tall

Just as I should be


The Burden

If
only
I knew
what to do

I
would
not be so
reliant on you

If
only
I knew
how to grieve

It
would be
so much easier
to let you leave

If
only
I knew
who to be

I’d
thank you
for your help
and set you free

‘I’ll Be There For You’

Sometimes all you need

Is a shoulder on which to cry

Someone armed with tissues

To help wipe away your issues

Is enough to help you get by


Why Not

Come here

She implored

And sit with me

Let’s drink some wine

Watch shit TV

We can hold hands

And talk all night

Until our troubles

Are out of sight

Save Yourself

Who do I think I’m kidding

She said

There’s no way that I could help you

You’d better off going it alone

She said

There’s more chance you’ll make it though


Ter(rain)

I’ll
take
your
hand

If
you
are
frightened

I’ll
hold
you
hair

If
you
feel
sick

I’ll
even
lead
you

To
the
path
of
enlightenment

If
you’re
really
fucking
quick

A Cosmic Connection

I don’t know what I’d do

If I didn’t have you

You were the only one

To keep me sane

It was like you knew

What I was going through

And how to help me

Feel like me again


Grounding

Thanks for talking to me

He said

I hope it was of some worth

Thank you so much for listening

She said

It has brought me back to earth

Two Heads Can Be Better Than One

There’s nothing wrong with being self sufficient

She said

After all it’s got me this far

I never said you weren’t resilient

He said

But that doesn’t have to be all you are


Toolkit

You wish you could fix me,
But you can’t.
I wish I would let you,
But I won’t.

Him

When I was at

My lowest ebb

It was you who was there

For me

You’ll never know

How much you did

To help my heart

Run free


Hope

Your words help guide my wayward step

And shine light in to my darkened heart

Your smile breaks my fall to the kitchen floor

And stems the tears from my haunted eyes

Your touch quietens the incessant voice in my head

And replenishes my embittered soul

You allow me to believe that love might be possible again

One day

My Hero

You came through

Like a bolt from the blue

When I never even knew

How much I needed you

You Hypocrite

Look out for each other

That’s what you said

Be considerate and kind

Well you never did

When you left me for dead

Whilst I slowly lost my mind

Speak Up

I can empathise

And respond in kind

Take my cue

From many a sign

But there is no way

I can read your mind

Down a silent

Telephone line

Protective

How can I stop you feeling so sad

He said

Please,

Just tell me and I’ll do it

I don’t know where to start

She said

And if I did,

I wouldn’t put you through it

The Plea That Went Unheard

They do not like me Jesus

He said

What am I supposed to do

If you teach me one of your tricks

Perhaps some friends might then ensue

I cannot help you friend

He said

For those tricks are mine alone

You must find your own way

Even if it means a lifetime alone

Spare Keys

The idea really

Was never

For you to just come

And go

It was more to ensure

You could open the door

To remove my head

From inside the stove

Miss Independent

Why don’t you actually help me

She said

Instead of standing there like a prick

Perhaps if you actually involved me

He said

I wouldn’t feel like such a dick

Grounding

Thanks for talking to me

He said

I hope it was of some worth

Thank you for listening

She said

It brought me back to earth

One Tap Away (Friends)

If ever you need someone

You don’t have to worry

As I’ll be there

Like a shot

Please never question

If you can call me

As I’d rather listen to you

Than not

Some Hit Harder Than Others

You could have been

So much more

But you drank it all away

I know deep down

Your heart was sore

And that you didn’t want to stay

But I wish you knew

How much we cared

And only wanted the best

Now you’re no longer here

We hope

You are finally at rest

(For O.R)

The Support Group

I do not come here

Every week

Looking for praise or reward

For I don’t deserve

Any of those things

Of that I have been assured

Funeral Arrangements

I took care of everything

But no one took care of me

Did it even occur to you

All that I had been through

And what was then my reality

After The Exorcism

Things should be better now

He said

They certainly shouldn’t be worse

I really hope so

She said

For I can’t live with this curse

Weak

I really am sorry

I cannot take your weight

For my arms are too broken

From carrying my own
