"I know how it feels to be completely alone and helpless, and the last thing you want to hear in that situation is, 'It's going to be OK. ' The only thing that seems to really help is that someone else who has felt that low expressing those feelings"

My beautiful words.
Words within my poetry.
The words I worship,
The words I mourn.
The words I cherish.
Words that make my blood run cold.
That make me cry a thousand tears.
The words of my heart.
I lay down my head,
The clock says it is late,
My eyes shut.
Beautiful words
I did not see.
An hour passed,
I did not know.
My mother calls my name.
And sleepy words

I fell asleep writing, and words began to flow.

“If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

"know" and "Flow" add a nice softness, dreamlike aspect to the an afterthought of a rhyme. Like the words this poem is about, it flows nicely and the enjambment you've used works well.
