Why i Can't Save You

from FaFa - Tuesday, January 10, 2006
accessed 970 times

headed closer to disaster

i am consumed by my own laughter

caught up in a humor laced and hazy.

you grip my hand

you say be my savior

but i can choose that direction


when im all wrapped in maybe's.

so dont confuse me with your christ

i cannot walk on water

i did not die for your sins

it seems to me

i'm fading......

and if absolution is your only resolution

then go ahead and count me out

because i dont know what im after.

i'm slipping into images that speak

i couldn't tell you where i've been

so you'll just have to trust a stanger

some things are just as they seem


if waking life is real

i don't want to feel

my dreaming has gone to waste

or i won't wake well tomorrow.

in dreams i am more


i have a tighter


a fist full

of ideas

that are oddly

all my own

and this is


i can't help her


i won't make him better


i can't save the world


i won't save you.

A stunning cap on knowing our limitations when we're trying to find our ground.

You're obviously coming to grips with co-dependancy and giving yourself space where you need it.

Nice, I imagine it's better when you recite it.

Thank you melons, and you are quite right about vocalizing it. Poems are meant to be heard rather than read.(reply to this comment

What should the weekly poll be changed to?

 The every so often poll.

 The semi-anual poll.

 Whenever the editor gets to it poll.

 The poll you never heard about because you have never looked at previous polls which really means the polls that never got posted.

 The out dated poll.

 The who really gives a crap poll.
