    My tears have ran
    Till they won’t run no more
    Feeling high and don’t drink
    Lost in the wind as my stomach twist and mentally hit
    Struggling to understand…Scorn by trust
    Betrayed once more…Want to scream but can’t
    …..Only a whisper comes
    Bleeding of untruth…Twisted in the dark
    The light is dim…Scared and lost on my own
    No one to turn too…Want to scream but I can’t
    …..only a whisper comes

    Going to have a talk with God

    Why oh why me?
    Not this time I beg you
    My heart can’t take this grief
    On my knees wishing
    I can go back in time
    Lord I want to scream
    ……..only a whisper comes

    This feeling deep inside of me
    Cuts like a razor… I can feel the blood pour
    Slowly as it takes a hold of me…and fills my lungs
    I begin to lose conscious my breathing becomes faint
    As I drift empty not knowing why. …Mentally hit as emotions fade
    And the haze takes over…walking through a maze of green weeds
    Lost don’t know my way back…this time…numb to all
    Twisted in the wind headed in the wrong direction
    Lord I want to scream
    ……..only a whisper comes

    Why oh why me?
    What have I done?
    Lord remove this curse please
    Not this time I beg you
    Please tell me….why me?
    Want to scream but I can’t
    …..only a whisper comes

    You shall not bring an abominable thing into your house, and become accursed like it; you shall utterly detest and abhor it; for it is an accursed thing.

    Deuteronomy 7.26

    this is packed with so much emotion and i'm fully aware of those moments that come when all you can do is whisper and God is the only one to hear you...
