Come Back Here With Me

Why have you disappeared,
see you're gone, though you're here.
It looks so dark in there,
what you see makes you scared.

Please can I just wake you up,
you look so terrified to me,
the door to your mind is shut.
Can I please just wake you up.

Your presence, crawls back in,
hurts when you, aren't with me.
You become, a blank canvas,
please come back, here with me.

Why do you go away,
to that far away place.
The torture shows on your face,
your chest shows your hearts at race.

What to do, what to do,
you won't let me help you.
Why won't you, why won't you,
won't you let me wake you.
I need you, I need you,
so just let me wake you.

About being with someone who constantly disappears within their own mind. They're there and yet not there.

So sad. However, everyone has their dark thoughts to deal with - prayfully they eventually return from that dark place.

Yeah, unfortunately people do have these places inside them where the worst of their memories play themselves out. And to be around someone who visits this place time and time again can cause such a lonely and helpless feeling; to be on the outside unable to look in. I found myself so badly wanting to help but there was no helping. I could only wait until it was over again, for the briefest times.

And thank you, I'm glad to be here. It's nice to read what others have written. And I like being able to share parts of myself in a way that always felt more comfortable for me.
