This Retched Agony~

Sitoh: junio 2015

You give me reason to breathe when all the wind has been knocked out of me
You make me feel like holding on one more day with a simply offer of tea
You give me the patience when all around friends and family have abandoned as host
You make me feel like a winner when the race was not even close

And gifted though they may be, they have never spared a minute for me
Whilst all the time you have always found time to nurture, no fee
The lines drawn between the fears of the many possibilities of them not liking me
Are the very same lines now forming the barriers of my emotional captivity

How I long to be free of this retched agony
Brought on it seems by my own insecurities
When once a child with childish dreams
Now arriving at my withering years
How sadly my hopes now replaced with fears

But still you cling to me like a life line not wanting to let go
And still you sing to me in the chorus having never said no
Come longer days followed by even longer nights
And when all that you have done still finds me laying down,
an eagle having lost its flight
You come to me and let it be known, sometimes winning is knowing when not to fight
