Pushing away- original poem

Photographs display
Pain hidden in smiles
Betrayed by hopeless eyes
Caught in the middle
Of a dark place
Don’t know where to go
Nowhere safe to call home

Pushing Away
Pulling away from everything
From the word
The shadows invite
Falling silently in the cold night

The world, my prison
Walls and fences, grey
The lies still filter through
Showing flaws as truth
Withdrawing further
Falling deeper,
How could you ever love me?

Pushing away
Pulling away from everything
Pushing away what I need
I realise my mistake

You found me
Broken, near death
You saved my life
Me from myself
You healed me,
And gave me new life
Just to hold me close again
Your long lost child
