Burning Sorrow - Poem by Grant Lovell

Tonight is my last time,
That I would love again.
This world around me,
Is twirling as I drown.

It's not the wounds that hurt.
Not the lies that I found.
It's the memories,
Bittersweet memories.

I don't know where I belong.
You leaving feels so wrong.
The pain just goes on for so long,
How can I go on?

I can't get out alive,
I'm out of sight.
I can't survive,
Unless, I'm gone tonight.

Whatever hurts you,
Kills me softly.
I know I can't make it through,
I just want to be with you.
So please, help me so true.

Watch me bleed, so I can love
Look into my eyes, past the skies
Have faith in me, feel the trust
Lead the lust, before I bust.

I used to hold you till tomorrow,
But now its all burning sorrow.
I'm waiting for the final deathblow,
So I can let go.
