The Point of Desperation

The point of desperation
Is a point of no return
A point where your heart's melting
like the candles that you burn

A point where you are fighting
Just to know that you're okay
A point where you'll do anything 
No matter what you say

A point where you will turn on
the closest one's you know 
The point where you are holding on
and never letting go

A point of painful longing
for the thing that you most seek
You sometimes point your finger
at the innocent or weak

The point of desperation 
is a point of no return
A point where your heart's melting 
Like the candles that you burn
