I wanted to come to you

I cried so hard I wanted to come to you,
To have you hold me while the pain shook me to my core.

I ached so much I wanted to come to you,
To have you tell me it would all be all right real soon.

I felt so much I wanted to come to you,
To have you help define the emotions raging in me.

But I couldn’t come to you

I couldn’t come to you,
To have you hold me
To have you tell me
To have you help me

Because you were not there.

This poem was written about wanting to go to an alcoholic for love and affection but them being too drunk to be there for me.
