Don’t Let Me Down – Chris Nelson

Don’t let me down

Or leave me here,

Just cut me down

And disappear,

Don’t let me know

Or tell me when,

The cruelest blow

Bury me then,

Don’t let me breathe

And suffocate,

In lies you weave

It gets too late,

Don’t let my song

Hang in the air,

With words so wrong

And none to spare,

Don’t let me walk

With only hate,

Whilst others stalk

The open gate,

Don’t let me down

Or leave me here,

Just cut me down

I’ll disappear.

  1. Your work is always such a fascination Chris.
    There is a strong juxtaposition of phrases and meanings throughout this one for me where you appear to contradict and yet I don’t think you are. I know you’re purposeful and intelligent, everything in this poem is deliberate, Thank you for sharing it.
