Been Here Before - Deep Poetry

Been Here Before

“I know, you think that it’s all broken . I know, but life isn’t all roses.”

 

I grab my glass again, my only defense.

I watch your eyes fill up and muscles tense.

This is new, this isn’t what you normally do.

This is new, I’m seeing a very different side of you.

 

 

I know you’re the same under that coat.

You try to speak but claim something in your throat.

I look away, you’ve never made me so afraid.

I look away, how did we get to this kind of day?

And, yet, I want to stay.

 

 

I put down my glass, and grab your hand.

You close your eyes, it’s not what I planned.

I know, you think that it’s all broken .

I know, but life isn’t all roses.

 

 

Its going to take a while, perhaps a deal of time.

I’ve been there myself and heard similar voices  as in your mind.

It’s a new find, now I’m on the other side.

It’s a new find, now I’m the one who is upright.

And, yet, I am afraid.

 

 

We lay down together and lay like always, here.

I turn to my side so you can’t see the tears.

I’ve been here before, so I know what you’re feeling even more.

I’ve been here before, so I won’t leave you alone.

 

 

I know I lean on your time after time.

Now it’s time for me to help you ease your mind.

Thank you, for all that I’ve put you through.

Thank you, for loving me like you do.

 

 

And, I want to be here.

And I want to help you.

And I want to get you through.

And, I’ve been here before.

So ,I know what you’re feeling even more.

I’ve been here before.

I’ve felt so on my own.

So, I won’t ever leave you alone.
