Wade through the water, and kiss my tears. Hold me not in your arms, but in your
heart. I fear that time has left me behind somewhere in fate. I long only to know
him, and drown in his darking soul.
I once walked alone in the face of shame. My sin followed me like a black cloud on a
rainy day. I cried out mercifully, begging for true forgivness. Who would hear my cry,
who should know my pain? I wish I could say love lifted me high, but love only spit
on me, and left me here to die. Swimming in a sea of emotion, giving my all showing
The words still hanging in the sky, as he kissed my lips and told me good-bye. All I
had left now was my rage, my gaurd was back up; my heart locked in a cage. I felt
as if there would never again be light, till someone else touched me and granted
back the sight.
Blinded by lust, and guilted through pain. I vowed last year I wouldn't love like that
again. Do these words, though, we ever speak come true? I thought I would stick to
my vow forever, until there was you.
