Longing for Love
Long did I clutch the bottle, the pill,
Longing, yearning, the empty hole to fill.
Such longing in my heart,
Their lie, a mask playing a part.
I cried, I tried, to abandon their lies,
their hold on me, a noose tied.
Free, free, why can't I be,
Of this hook set deep in me.
Deep darkness, despair, all I see,
Chained down, I want, can't flee.
Death, peaceful death, please cover me,
Earthen grave, my only plea.
Stretched out, damp, cold night,
Pain, punsihment, I sense is right.
In despair, my head hangs low,
Eyes, tears, capturing a glow.
Hands reach to hold my chains,
Scars, history of cruelty, pain.
Love , compassion, shine from His face,
Shackles, links, shattering-falling, in our embrace.
