Save Me!

sos

I want to send an SOS
just to see
who comes to rescue me;
but the childhood stories
of the boy who cried wolf
hold me back

What if I used up
the one shout
that I had earned
to break the trust?

But I’d be lying
if I said, that is what
stops me,
for these stories
with their obvious morals
always hide something,
the sub-text, if you will
a covert message for those
who really want to see

For what we worry
is not, wasting our
one real chance
but finding out
that no one will come,
that you we never
had a chance
