That would make a difference


Jun 6, 2018-

When the pain was overwhelming

and the tears didn’t stop

trickling down my cheeks

would you rather

come to me and

erase the thoughts

off of the head and

wipe the tears

with a soft touch


That would make a difference.

When nightmares haunt

When no one is in sight

But you be by my side

 Allaying my fears

With an embrace

Would you rather say,

Sleep well  because

“I’ve caught

all the terrors

and cast them away”

That would make a


When the heart bleeds

From sharp edges of broken dreams

When there was nothing to do

With nothing to tell

rather than staying apart

Would you come to me

and be my voice

That would make a difference.

When the echoes grow louder

And the happiness subsides

and the pain turns to numbness

From the dome of the sky

to where I lie

I see stars

Like scars seeping light

From perfect darkness

So would you come to me

And say,

“Don’t worry

I’ll be with you”

That would make a difference.

Anything would’ve

Made a difference

if you were the same

as the one in my thoughts

But you’re not,

Because you were different.
