Deserve

Tonight I feel low

Crawling up for air

Breathing in for life

 

Tonight I fell deep

Pushed down by life

Pushed down by love

 

Was it security that held me 

Perhaps a chain which binded

Was it fear which held me

Perhaps guilt that blinded

 

Tonight I saw

What once was love

Turned dark and sad

What once shone hope

Faded glimmer of what was had

 

To see one push you down

On your knees

Crying tears of pleading

Reaching for the last signs of hope

 

To see one push you down

Watch you cry

Watch you crawl

 

What deserves this?

For there is only the what, not the whom.

No person deserves this

The silence

The tears…

Why should I?
