A Needed Hand

Falling.
No one put a hand out to catch me,
So I've been here for a damn long time,
Still falling in this Hellish Otherworld.
I screamed for you to come
Come take me out of here,
But I guess you're like them after all,
Never listening, never caring.
Come to think of it, I remember:
You were watching me leave,
Watching my tears fall into nothingness
As the sun set on me forever.

It's a shame not many people have read this poem. It's really good. Keep writing!
Ebone, you paint a very sad picture here, unfortunately some friends are like this, in other words, they're not really friends after all. Melvina
