341 Crying Out [23 September 2000]

I look upon the world,
my heart feeling torn from my body,
pain ripping it to little pieces
all because a little thing called love
is missing from my life.
I’ve been alone for so long
that it seems that it will always be so.
All I want is to close my eyes,
to feel his arms around me,
whoever he is,
I don’t even know.
It is hard to get up in the morning
when I don’t know if I’ll even find love.
I fear dying because if I died tomorrow
I would never have known love.
That scares me as much as I doubt
that I will ever find it.
I keep my eyes open,
searching for that face.
those eyes,
that I have only seen in dreams.
All I can do is cry at night,
wondering. . .
Where are you?
I want you.
I need you.
I need love.
Find me,
take away this loneliness,
fill me up with you.
There are so many words to say
but none express this pain in my heart,
this everlasting loneliness,
this despair that has taken me.
