Flood of Tears


I'm trying to hold back a flood of tears

because I can't be with you right now.

The pain is so deep it pierces every part of my body

then pierces my soul with a sting that makes me  

unable to function the way I should.

I need you in my life more than I've ever needed anything.

I want to wake up every morning

and your eyes be the first thing I see.

I want to go to bed every night  

with your lips close to mine as I drift off.

I never want to go through a single day without you.

But now I don't know where you are

and there's a storm brewing in my mind,

the lightening strikes my brain

and the thunder shakes me from within.

And the rain is filling my head

And I'm still trying to hold back this

flood of tears.
