I cried out in my despair,
I was longing to find love,
But nothing was there.
I withdrew to hide my inner turmoil,
And lay down critical,
Eyes filled with tears.
I held my heart with both hands,
Squeezing it tight.
Not wanting my love
To disapear into the night.
I know the struggle I must endure,
When my emotions begin to fight.
It leaves me weak from the battle,
That wants to take my life.
I wish that someone would help me,
To carry this load,
Because sometimes the burdens get to heavy,
For one person to bear on their own.
