Don't Drop Me in the Water (Poem)

Drop me in the water,

I will fall.

Pull me into the murky depths,

Let me be lost again.

-

Don't walk away from me.

I'm afraid of the waves that crash over me,

The currents that drag me down.

Come back for me.

You won't find me.

-

Release me here in the dark.

Here it is safe.

Walk with me into the night.

-

I can't see you anymore.

I'm blinded by the silence between us.

Bound and chained and left to die alone,

Betrayed by my own.

-

Lead me into the day,

Show me what I can truly be.

Tell me what everyone sees.

You see beauty, I only see me.

-

Drop me in the water.

Teach me to swim.

Help me through the rain.

I am here at the crossroads,

Which path do I take?
