    I sense
    cold hands
    thieving all
    I believe in.

    I feel
    a hole
    gaping in
    my wounded soul.

    The cherished life,
    with you,
    I lived years ago,
    I deeply grieve for.

    I am down
    so **** low.
    I see no way
    up or around.

    I am buried
    deep beneath
    the smother
    of their lies.

    Who was it
    that said life
    was unburdened
    and easy?

    A fool,
    I presume.
    At times,
    my life is
    unbearably
    cruel.

    I don't
    have to
    assume this
    to be truth.

    I know of this
    from the pain
    embedded in
    my heart.

    I am still
    searching
    for reasons
    and grappling
    for stability.

    I seek a strong hand
    to take me far away
    from this unsteady life
    I can no longer stand.

    I am begging you
    to whisk me away
    and show me
    the brightest light
    of the dawning of
    a new day.

    Softly, place me
    in the grace
    of your embrace
    and give me
    the life I have
    been yearning.
