Gathering Together

Prayer of the Estranged

 

My life is empty.

  My energy is gone.

I can love no one

  While his heart is my home.

 

     *****

 

In the still of the night,

   I find no comfort in bed

I hear the sound of battle cries

  And voices in your head.

I taste your sweat.

  I smell your fear

As you recall spirits of yesteryear.

  They haunt your mind

Disturbing your sleep

  They keep you awake

And cause me to weep.

  So many emotions in so little time,

Turn men into babies

  And heroes to wine.

 

     *****

Save me Father!

From the one I love

His demons torment me

They've stolen My Love

His fear is the enemy.

Keeping us apart,

Buying my soul

And selling my heart.

Leaving me empty

With my energy gone

Crying I can love no one

While his heart is my home.
