except for the buzzing
of the flourescent lights
in this deserted classroom.
I'd like to tie a tourniquet
around your wounded heart
and watch until the blood
My every muscle hurts.
I fight my eyes for sight.
It seems my day just starts...I blink
and once again it's night.
Why can't I be happy
when the world is at my door?
I have all that I'll ever need.
I couldn't ask for more.
Love is a verb.
Why don't you understand?
It's not just something you can hold
or give from hand to hand.
They said ''You'll never make it''.
We said ''Just watch and see''.
No matter what they thought back then
We've made it and we're free.
Why am I so selfish?
I should think more of her.
But instead of seeing what could be
I'm being so immature.
I always wondered
where my love of books came from
it certainly wasn't from
all the tender moments
As I creep down the path of forgiveness
and I search for my own lonely heart,
I yearn for the feel of completion.
I must finish what God made me start.
