Strong (or not)

Days ago

Were years ago

Did you know I wanted to hear your voice

That I use to fear

The silence of your anger

Once there was a soft nightime voice

That would wrap around me

Your love is needed

And I wish to explain

I must be strong and fearless

Threats can not have power over me

I've lived too long

Under their tyranny

So do as you will

Though I am unable to ask for your love

I need it just the same
