No One’s Coming to Save You

No One’s Coming to Save You (By Cat Matchuk)

How very studious of you
How very productive

Pour another glass, tuck yourself in
You have nowhere to go
no one to see
Not in this world

Don’t shoot the messenger

Call and no one picks up.
Everyone has someone
Everyone is with someone
And you, alone, have no one
No one’s coming to save you.

It doesn’t mean lie down,
die.

How very pretentious of you
How very evasive

Try to hide in the shadows
squeeze into the corners, but there aren’t shadows here
not in this world.

Call and no one picks up.
No one’s coming to save you,
better learn to save yourself.
