Take a second to listen
as the tear drops and glistens
shedding all my fear
all my cares
if I could ever feel
then maybe I could bow and kneel
to have a heart to share
my heart as desert sand
my soul lay barren
I can barely stand
hollow eyes keep staring
I’ve died without living
or lived without knowing
I’m grasping at air
as she fades
no longer wondering if she cares
and my grave is made
I dig deep
sanity I wish to keep
when my time comes
one bullet in the gun
