Feeling unloved is how I see death to be. I have felt it and never want to again.

Strangled twisted roots
Preventing all potential
Won’t someone give a damn?
Stop me going mental

Hold me in your arms
Give me some direction
Shattered fragile mind
Starved of all affection

Life is just a journey
A long winding road
Someone please protect me
From the unrelenting cold

The sky without birds
The sea without fish
A heart with no beat
Is all that I wish

I ache to be loved
For someone to care
What have I done?
To have no one there

Was I born bad?
My mothers curse
Tormented and empty
Could I feel any worse?

Pray give me hope
A reason to be
Free from this pain
Happy with me

Love me just once
That’s all I ask
To face the world
Discarding my mask
