I'll bite my tongue til it's black and blue. Tongue tied by karma And repetitive thoughts of you. Can't let you know it all, And risk giving you more power over me. I can only trust and pray to the powers that be. I suffer in silence Every single day. I only have this one life And I don't see another way. Yes I wish things were different, But it always stays the same. Maybe from my cowardice, Or is it because I'm brave? I ask Him every single morning, "Why, just why?" And all I get is silence, So I cling to hope that whatever's meant for you, Will never pass you by.
