Wish I Knew
Holding on with all of my might,
I doubt my own strength can win this fight.
I don't want to admit defeat but not sure I have a choice,
as with their lies and bitterness they drown out my voice.
The hurt that I'm feeling I try so hard to release,
but their comments never seem to cease.
So I take it just as I've always done,
in the belief that this battle can never be won.
Finding myself lost all over again,
not certain what I had I'll ever be to retain.
In a solitary beat I feel faith slip from my true heart,
as in its place doubt and hurt take its part.
Doubting I'll ever find love that's true,
hurting twice as much as she tore me in two.
Thankful that I've been here before,
so longer fearful what lies through this door?
Where I need no appointment for I have my own seat,
the place where I realise once more I'm to admit defeat.
I wonder how long I'll be here this time,
when will true love be mine?
No time soon as this one's thrice shy,
so with a heavy heart here I lie.
Unable to fathom why I get hurt the way I do,
with every ounce of me I truly WISH I KNEW?!?!
