Nowhere (Let Me Die) - Poem by joshua wickstrom

(This is more of a song than a poem.)

[verse 1]

my bleeding hearts,
running dry,
these broken wings,
I cannot fly,
nowhere to hide,
nowhere to cry,
nowhere, nowhere,
but where I lie.


[pre-chorus]
pull me away from the dark,
release me from your aching heart,
im so sick of living for you,
just let me die, just let me die..

[chorus]
calm like a stone,
A dream come true,
Im all alone,
crying for you,
eyes of ice,
melting tears.
come again, face your fears.
come again, face my fears.


[verse 2]

my selfish ways,
will not fade,
broken dreams,
I cannot aid,
nowhere to hide,
nowhere to cry,
nowhere, nowhere,
but where I lie

[pre-chorus]
pull me away from the dark,
release me from your aching heart,
im so sick of living for you,
just let me die, just let me die..

[chorus]
calm like a stone,
A dream come true,
Im all alone,
crying for you,
eyes of ice,
melting tears.
come again, face your fears.
come again, face my fears.

[verse 3]

my spoken words,
are absurd,
broken voice box,
I cannot be heard
nowhere to hide,
nowhere to cry,
nowhere, nowhere,
but where I lie
nowhere, nowhere,
but where I die,
