ran a million miles for you

A lead weight around my neck

Stood on pins and broken glass

My heart was not in check

Can you see the pain that leaked from my eyes?

When I tired so hard to please

Desire to feel loved was mine to give

Yet you did nothing to appease

A feeling of pure loneliness’s

In a heart I called desire

You cast me off into the wind

But set my soul on fire

A man cast into a chasm

A place to think and plan

Released back into the wild

A bright and soaring man

You will not recognise me

Both in your eyes and soul

Can you feel the power I possess?

Destiny is my control

Guarded against rejection

Shielded from pain and fear

Love is now withing my grasp

Approaching a brighter year
