A short poem about mental illness
We were so happy when you were around
Then one day your body no longer made your sound
You went away and I wondered why
This alter could not feel and wasn’t able to cry
It’s hard that they want to keep me from you
I will do everything and love them all if it means I’d have you
I can’t imagine how hard it must be
To be split apart and not be one but many
I feel like I lost you that day
When your expression changed and you backed away
My heart is hurting from the sudden break
I keep thinking I said something wrong or made a mistake
I know they surface to protect you from all
But I would never let anything happen to you or let you fall
