Burning - Poem by Edgar John Jackson

Walking alone or I’m just sit on the roof
Thinking about you but I’m aloof
Loneliness sees a tear on my face
That breaks one smile for loving you so strong
No doubts in my mind but I long
‘Coz I wanna take you to my own place…

You can be sure what I feel it’s true
You’ve come to me so day outta the bule
Breaking my chains from this lonely time
Faith moves mountains that I can’t climb…

Oh, oh, oh my life is so empty now
And I don’t find some reasons somehow
To have you close beside me…
Oh, oh, oh I just wanna make you see
This pain that’s burning me up inside
To keep you by my side…

It’s so hard to breathe this air if you ain’t with me
I’d risk my life just to make you come to me
So many miles are between you and me
But I feel you so deep inside though you’re far
‘Coz I see your face as a star…
