why is my heart longing
for a belonging
a song i could have written
before i was by darkness, bitten
now bruised,and waiting to heal
and the wound that has eaten my zeal
yet i search for love and the wanting
that can chase away my ghosts and haunting.
so drown me in your love and needing
and still this aching heart that’s bleeding
and love me,even if just a little
till my bones grow strong from worn and brittle
and take my shadow in your care
and clean my tears off with your hair
for a lover lays in side me
just in fate and for faith,that love shall find me.
