Reach for the Sun
One Step forward
Two steps back
Love lies bleeding
An emotional attack.
Not prepared for what was done,
Survived it all,
Another day won.
Crawling in my skin
Don’t know where I fit it.
I cry and reach for the ceiling
I feel like my brain is bleeding.
The pounding I feel in my head,
While I lay, curled up, in my bed.
Sometimes, I could walk with the dead
Leaving behind all of my dread.
But then, I hear your voice in a song
And those thoughts of being alone
Are not so strong anymore.
Eventually, they are all gone
Leaving me standing again once more
Finding my smile from inside was a chore
But, I survived my thoughts once again
And your song took away all my pain.
So, know, I dance in the rain
Smiling through all of my pain
I reach for the sun once again.
