    I’m tired of going through the motions,
    Of combing through and organizing my emotions.
    I’m tired of not knowing why I feel a way that is certain,
    And of how no one else can sense when I’m hurting,
    And understand why I’m hurting.
    I’m tired of memories past,
    Of longing connections that didn’t last.
    And I’m tired,
    Because I put in so much energy,
    Thinking that it would,
    But apparently it was only me.
    I’m tired of my feelings taking me for a ride.
    I’m tired of them being bottled up,
    And corroding my inside.
    I’m tired of no one understanding,
    How deep my feelings flow,
    And that it still takes a hold of me,
    Even when the causes go.
    I’m tired of sealed up passion,
    And the only release being in black lines.
    It seems as if I can’t avoid the cycle,
    Because it happens from time to time.
    I’m tired of everyone around me,
    Seeing an insane infatuation,
    When to me it’s simply a fascination.
    I’m just so tired of trying to cast my feelings aside,
    And them being tossed like the waves at high tide
    Then feeling safe enough to open my heart wide,
    But then quickly suppressing and trying to hide,
    My true feelings…
    Oh God help me…hear me as I speak,
    Uplift and help me to see the reason to go on,
    Instead of giving up and becoming satisfied with being alone.
    I look to you…because Your rule to love with Your gift of love,
    Has Your child very weak…

    Sometimes it seems that life has just worn us out, but in God you will feel revived. Feeling this flow.

    The entire peace is deep
    however... these lines
    touched me deeper
