I Need You

God (Inspired by)

I haven’t faced any more

heartbreak than the next person,

but sometimes the loneliness is so crippling.


I want to believe there is a reason for pain,

that sorrow has a purpose

besides a conduit for tears.


There’s more to life than I’ve known;

it can’t just be a leap of faith

from one breath to the next.


I never wanted to get stuck here,

but I’ve been down this road before,

and its misery is comforting.


I try to hear your voice

but the surrounding noise is stifling,

drowning out truth with paranoia.


I need you to tell me I’ll get through this.

I need your strength to continue on

because I don’t have it in me. 


I need you to get me out of here

and erase the past that threatens

to paralyze me from progress.
