I'm so broken..
I wish I was stronger.
If not for myself, at least for you.
I want to lend you my shoulder to cry on,
but my soul is too weak to ease your burden.
I wish I could take all of your pain,
and bear it as my own.
I yearn for you to see my real face, my heart.
But the fear that surrounds me,
keeps my love locked in.
Unable to reach you.
I'm calling out to you.
Do you hear my voice?
Do you hear my cries?
I'm trying to break open this prison,
I'm trying to reach out to you.
Do you hear me, love?
I'm here. I'm right here...
Please don't walk away...
I swear. I'm trying...
I'm just so broken.
We are all broken. We're human, after all.
