All I Can Give

All I have I Give what do you say to a man that doesn't want to live, what do you say when what he needs you don't have to give. What do you say to a man living in a world so cold, what do you say so that he wants to live to grow old. What do u say to someone who feels so broken, when feeling so alone what words should be spoken. Holding your breath sitting here hoping, wishing there was a way for him to start coping. Heart pounding so hard with each breath comes pain, tears building emptying falling like rain. Barely holding on trying to remain sane, wishing you too werent alone calling out no one came. Just barely grasping on a life full of ghosts It's a rot eating parasite and I feel like its host Knowing his pain more than many more than most. Even the withdrawals the lonely the hurt we match so close. Wanting to just give in and go to our grave, but I'm still sitting here trying to be brave. Watching as my world crumbles breaks apart caves. Anything ive had I would had gladly gave Empty within full of gut wrenching doubt Having gone so long just doing without. Now when he needs me I have nothing to reach out. Looking for answers for help figuring it out Seeing the empty space that surrounds Knowing what he feels never anyone around Feeling so lost you feel the only comfort is in the ground. But knowing there is still hope it just has to be found. Heart so heavy spirit sinking so deep Words are lost I can't even make a peep Wanting to just lay down and forever just sleep My body convulsing as i continue to weep Failure this time doesnt quietly just sneak Its screaming so loud silence I seek Knowing theres nothing that can be done your heart just gets weak From within my soul I begin to leak Wanting it to stop just wait show him how to live Theres nothing ive ever had I wouldnt give To show him he can do this just hunch down and dig Stick ur toes in the ground and refuse to die.. Please just live Knowing with the light comes another time I fail Thinking he will believe I dont care my face pales Wishing I could show him each scar each nail Each time I tried to lessen their hurt each time I failed. Each time I punished myself and I hid Each time heart broken I didnt want to live Each time wanting needing to be dead What do I say this time that I havent already said How do I show him to bite down and just live.. Silently to myself I keep saying.. just live.. just live... just live... Biting down and remembering to simply just live...
