#9 The Nurse

It was she

Who stopped my hands from shaking


Who stopped my head from aching


Who stopped my voice from quaking

So why can’t she stop

My heart from breaking?


You say you’re ever loving

Yet your cruelty holds no bounds

If you care as much

As they tell me

Then why do you make me frown

Left Guessing

Time moves on

Yet I’m stood still

Fading away

Losing the will

As each second

Passes me by

I can’t forget

Or stop asking why


I wish I could
take your plaudit

But I just write
what comes to me

My inability
to self edit

Laid bare for
all to see


What did I do
to deserve this?

Why did this
happen to me?

Where will
I end up now?

Who is coming
to save me?


Why can’t I trust myself,
like I trusted you?

Why can’t I protect myself,
like I protected you?

Why can’t I love myself,
like I loved you?
