Close the door behind me.

Crawl up as small as I can be.

Put on the songs that people sing when they feel like I do.

The room is dark, even though there's the light that light is blue.

I wanna fall apart and cry.

Maybe things can get better if I just die.


Fighting the urge to let those tears fall.

I tell my family I wanna be left alone.

But I'm a liar. I wanna be held.

I want to be in your arms and feel free to fall apart

because in your arms I can be held together, but at the same time I can be allowed to fall apart.


I want you to tell me that everything will be okay.

I wanna fall asleep to your whispered singing.

I want you to blow a little bit of fresh air whenever I feel like I'm about to burn out.

I want you to tell me not to end this because this is only the beginning.

I wanna wake up next to you after a long crying night.

What used to be the moon and the stars is now the sun hitting our eyes oh so bright.


As I'm looking into your eyes and through your eyes our future.

I get a safe feeling when I see my future through your eyes.

A family that we will build together, one that feels comforting.

The confirmation of a less dreadful present in the future.


I just want you to get me out.

I want you to give me hope.

You can make me feel secure walking a tightrope.


I know that I will love you.

Even if I don't know who you is.

I know you're out there whoever you is.

This is a poem about missing someone you haven't met yet. Or maybe you have but you don't know how important they will become. About needing that someone because the ppl around you make you feel unhealthy and alone. (for me it's my household)

This is so good! I love the "missing someone you don't have yet", it's like a song I know by Meghan Trainor, "Dear Future Husband." Listen to it sometime. Always keep writing!
