Surrounded

By on Wednesday 23rd November, 2011

All…my…life
I’ve been surrounded by broken people
Is it because I’m a fixer?
Or is it because I need to be fixed?
Is it my imagination?
Or is it an unhealthy mix

All…I…know
Is that when I swing my door open
People…come…in
Who haven’t a door for themselves
Or ran out the door that they came from
Who’ve had the door shut behind them
Or burnt down the door once called ‘home’

Should…I…stay
As I stand, and serve as a cleric
Whilst inside I further fragment
Into nothing of my own
Can…I…go?
Without all of these fragile people
Would I have a subconscious purpose?
A reason not to walk alone
