Say Something

Say something nice to me,
Just because I am,
Trying, living, making an effort.

Say something nice to me,
Not because I am good,
Or even slightly worthy.

Say something kind to me,
Because your voice soothes,
When self doubt scorches my soul.

Say something kind to me,
As if yours were the last,
I would hear on this earth.

Say something sweet to me,
To tide me over,
Until I can believe and be satiated.

Say something sweet to me,
While my own bitter tongue,
Lashes me so.

Say something, anything, to me,
To remind me that I exist,
At all.

  1. Touching.

    If the eyes in the avatar are yours, then they are lovely.
    But I am not just saying it. I was only seeking an excuse to compliment. And this poem was it.
    And if they are not, then someone is fortunate
