Humbly I Lie in Wait

I live a life of torture and pain.
I can’t explain the reasons I need to pray.
Please forgive me, ease my sentencing.
My penance is renting my soul.
My joy will never be full.
I don’t follow the truth I know.
I drop the beliefs I need to hold.
No self-pity.
These silly games I play.
The dreams I have laid away, fade.
Nobody knows the prices I’ve paid.
I stayed.
I gave.
I crave.
Promise me you’ll love me forever.
Don’t leave me alone.
I want to be together.
A tear in my eye, I cry.
I’m wondering why.
Swelling inside, like waves of the sea, emotion.
An angry and tired ocean of worthless devotion.
He that owns me owes me nothing.
I am the one that owes something.
