There is something, once lost,
it baffles the Soul.
No telling why it came.
No telling why it goes.

There is a void, irreplaceable,
except by return.
But we all know better.
It’s time to look ahead.
There is something, intangible
that the heart struggles to grasp.
No telling where to look.
No telling how long it’ll last.

The heart wants something.
The heart needs something.
But no matter how hard
the eyes to see.
There’s no telling when it will come.
And, even more, when it will go.

The Soul still yearns
for something to fill.
The void that God made.
For some Divine Purpose.

A single thought with many words to speak.
Unspoken they shall remain.
In this shadow, friend, I will keep it.
Hoping not one ray of knowledge falls upon
It’s hidden places.
There’s no desire for you to know or hear.
It’s mine to keep.
You cannot have it.
I take comfort. In knowing that the shadow we cast
Will hide what I really feel inside.

Don’t you worry young girl about what’s been on your mind. Thoughts that come to you while your head rests on the pillow. Keep it in your heart and someday you will find. What He has in store. Just for you. Don’t you worry about a thing. Because today you’re going to drive it away. Pack up and leave it for a while. Just drive away. No looking back to what you’ll leave behind. Just have faith that when you return there will be something better that you’ve gained. In this time of reflection, you’re sure to find. All the things that God wants you to realize. You’ll pick it up and take it with you wherever you may go. Something better than what you left behind. But for now. Just drive it away. Pack up and leave it for a while. Just drive it away. No looking back to what you’ll leave behind. Simply have faith. That there is something much better to gain.

Never meant to take this kind of hurt from anyone.
You were never meant for something like this.
You shine with endless grace, you radiate.

But no one ever sees what you’re really made of.
No one ever sees the things you want to share.

And I’m so tired.
Of being let down.
I’m so tired.
Of being let go.
Don’t want to do it anymore.
I guess I’m going alone.

Never meant to fall from the grace you are given.
No you were never meant to lost all of that.
Persistence one of many loads you bear.

But no one is ever there to be your strength.
No one ever wants to take on all of you.

And I’m so tired.
Of being let down.
I’m so tired.
Of being let go.
Don’t want to do it anymore.
I guess I’m going alone.

Where is strength?
Where is hope?
When you need it so badly.
From someone other than yourself?
Where is love?
Where is confidence?

Maybe you were meant to bear these questions all alone.
Maybe He knows it’s better like that.
No matter what you say, you know it’s true.

No one will be there at the end of your day.
There is no one really meant to be that for you.

But Lord I’m tired.
Of being let down.
And I’m so tired.
Of being let go.
Don’t want to do it anymore.
But you keep me going alone.

I walk away. You come out after me. But it’s not the way it seems to be. You simply do the honorable thing. It’s my fault you see. For in that moment I let the fantasy get the better of me. I acted foolishly.

There’s nothing there. You aren’t aware. And the fear of knowing truth is almost too much to bear.

For you are simply and honorable man. But that’s not so simple at all. I walked away expecting just to leave. But you added something to me. Alas not for the matters that filled my heart to fantasy. You don’t need me. You only wished to do the honorable thing.

Folly and heartache wait for their victim.
For the woman, thinking not, who opens
The door that leads to love.
To her error.

The pages of my books.
Oh, what faithful companions.
Never will they refuse my company.
They need me, always near.
Keep your nose in a book.
And do not forget.
They are the only things that find you.
Beautiful and Captivating.
And always worth the
Time and effort.

You were you. I was I. Knowingly. We both collide. Dichotomy will now reside. In the place. Where we meet. Truest of true. Strong and bold. You hold me in. We make a mold. Two spirits meet by chance. Find refuge in words exchanged. My mouth knows not what my heart proclaims: contentedness? Commonplace? Feelings for which I have no name. Yea, what a pair we make. With strife and joy. For friendship’s sake. A mutuality that we cannot shake. No years needed. No introduction given. Our match was predetermined. By outside forces driven. And now side by side we may stands. Arms wrapped round each other, or even hand in hand. Yes, friends we have discovered; within ourselves, within the other. And now we will forever be. For you are you. And I am me.

I am a helper
Comparable to no one
Trapped in this alter-Eden
No rib to spare
In my Creation
No one with whom to share
My thoughts, though I have many
I can’t seem to find any
Body to stop and sit with me
He made no match for me and now
I’m starting to see
The light that shines upon my fate

I am a helper
Comparable to no one
Trapped in this alter-Eden
No rib to spare
In my Creation
No one for whom to care
Though deep inside my heart is yearning
My passion’s overturning
All fear of confidence I lack
I don’t want to look back
Only forward to what lies ahead
A face, unknown, beside me
In my bed, my head
Swims, overflowing with rapture
For someone who will capture
Me. Someday.
As I hope and pray for this
I understand he doesn’t exist

I am a helper
Comparable to no one
Trapped in this alter-Eden
No rib to spare
In my Creation
No one with whom I pair
Though all around me they all do
For me this thing remains untrue
I knew from the start
That my own heart
Was set apart
From al the normal standards
Of Creation
Never meant for celebration
When my match would finally come
And take me to the place
Where all my friends have gone
No, it’s not for me
However unusual it may seem

I am a helper
Comparable to no one
Trapped in this alter-Eden
No rib to spare
In my Creation
No one with whom God fared
That I should be
So I won’t be alone
By nature prone
To wander where on all the Earth
He could see
The likeness made for me
It’s so unfair that He would choose
That I should never lose
This independence

No matter how cold this world will be
It is better alone for all eternity
This is where God calls me

I am a helper
Comparable to no one
Trapped in this alter-Eden
No rib to spare
In my Creation
No one with whom…

                      I have anything.
