Just another poem

by Amy Niggel

So maybe I thought that things would work out
and maybe they still might
I have reached the point,
passed it really
I have nothing good left in me
dead inside,
a shell of a person
I feel shallow
and selfish
simply fighting for my own survival
maybe I thought you were the one to run to
maybe you still might be,
Don't give up on me yet
stand by me just a moment longer
life may yet fill these tired old lungs
this battered heart may have a beat or two left in it.
so maybe I thought that I could do this alone
and maybe I still might have to test that.
just don't give up on me
this girl is tired of fighting
but she hasn't walked away from a battle yet
maybe I was wrong to think that I could believe in you
maybe I wasn't.
maybe all I ever needed was some one to believe in me
and maybe that might be you.


Author's Note: "No one thought I was good enough for you except for you, don't let them be right after all that we've been through... Maybe I'm not but you're all I've got left to believe in, don't give up on me I'm about to come alive, I know its been hard and its been a long time coming, but don't give up on me I'm about to come alive." ~Train. This song was the inspiration for this line. I know it is a bit odd but I almost kinda like it in a bizarre kind of way.
