Catch Me When I Fall

Catch me when I fall

Raise me when I’m down

Hear me when I call

Sometimes I play the clown

but I still cry inside

Raise me when I’m down

Grief rises with the tide

I yearn to stand up strong

but still I cry inside

I pretend I’m never wrong

Don’t let me turn to stone

I yearn to stand up strong

I don’t want to be alone

Is there still hope for love?

Don’t let me turn to stone

The moon burns cold above

Is there still hope for love?

Catch me when I fall

Hear me when I call

 

 

Prompt:Catch Me When I Fall

Form: Terzanelle

    I came to a point where I had to bear up too long, and I literally can’t cry. A lot of people think I’m unfeeling, but I’m not. I’m numb.

    • Grab hold where you can. A ray of sun on the wall as you sip a cup of coffee. A dog’s soft fur. A happy memory. Those are the building blocks. Don’t worry about what other’s think. You may cry tomorrow or many years from now or never. Your words tell me you are not unfeeling. I believe you.

  2. I really, really like the way this reads, the rhythm of it. Wonderful terzanelle!

  3. The repetition in the form makes it a very powerful call for compassion and comfort. I want to try this one. Excellent!
