How Much Longer
How much longer...till my emotional scars finally heal?
Because wishing on fallen stars no longer seem so real.
How much longer...till my dark sky parts and the sun breaks through?
I look deep within my heart, but there's no more you.
How much longer...till love finds me and the butterflies return?
I'm trying to put the pain behind me, although I still feel the burn.
How much longer...till I feel the sharp sting of cupids arrow?
Maybe cupid has a broken bowstring, or the gateway to my heart is too narrow!
How much longer...till I'm emotionally free, and the blood begins to flow once more?
I guess I'll continually bury myself in my poetry, hoping to unlock that door!!
