From the Outside by Annette Deyro

From the Outside by Annette Deyro # Please don’t feel bad That I can’t see you. Just because I’m sad Doesn’t mean you have to be too. Don’t climb in with me When I am in this hole. Just wait, stay, let me be– It’s enough you see my soul. # Read Annette Deyro’s work. ...

Hi Annette – this is lovely, short and heartfelt and the rhyming doesn’t feel at all contrived. Nicely done.

This is lovely. The love of not wanting someone to deep dive with you but just be near and see you is divine. 🖤

Annette, As someone who experiences a deep, inexplainable sadness often, but is not overtaken by it, I love this. Just let me be, don’t try to fix it, don’t get sad with me, just be. Well done.

Hello Annette, Your poem sums up the love that others show by just ‘being there’ when you are low. Thank you for sharing a very perceptive poem.

I love this poem and how you portrayed the hard days. I suffered with depression and I never wanted anyone to feel the pain I felt or to feel they had to suffer with or be with me. I wanted them to live their lives and enjoy their happiness, allowing me to recover and join them instead of them joining me in my suffering. Such a short and sweet poetry that has a huge meaning. Great job!
