Still Spinning

 

these words have been haunting me,

echoes in the hallways,

of my hollowed mind.

 

these feelings ricochet back,

bouncing off my ribs,

and move through my veins.

 

and all of my cells raise a question,

one i cannot escape.

and all of my bones ache for answers,

that i cannot avoid.

so I ask once again-

 

why can't I hold back the world?

I'm tired of these days that feel like night.

why can't I hold back the world?

I'm worn down from the darkness without Your light.

 

these thoughts are following me,

shadows behind my step,

in dark corners of me.

 

these feelings rip through my skin,

likes knives in my lungs.

won't you help me breathe?

 

 

why can't I hold back the world?

I'm tired of these days that feel like night.

why can't I hold back the world?

I'm worn down from the darkness without Your light.

 

When all I want to do,

is keep the world from hurting you,

why can't I?

The End
