Tears in my eyes refuse to roll down,
there's a lump in my throat.
There's a voice in my head.
Trapped in ambiguity and conundrum,
I lose faith in myself.
Everyday's like a challenge to me.
I am unprepared .
I am daunted by the unpredictability of the circumstances.
I am unable to rise from the fall.
I want to shout and scream and release that lump that's stuck in my throat for so long.
I am busy somedays and empty always,
I am happy somedays and devastated all days.
All I seek is love ,
a little crumb of it is enough.
I can satiate myself from whatever I receive.
I yearn for a touch ,
Can someone please hold my hand and take me away from this gruesome reality.
All I need is a drop of love to quench my empty heart.
