What has happened to me? Where have I hidden? When I search for the word to type the letters of my feelings, no such word exists ...nothing is there. I try to access my heart so I can pick up and move to drink in life and walk the squares of pavement, as opposed to watching from dusty windows ...but, something has been locked.
When my mind wonders back and the feelings begin to burn, I move back ...slipping into my shell. Comfortable, shut in as the hermit crab who's home is his shelter. Inside alone there are only my rules. No pretending I have not become cold and hopeless.
Can't somebody see I need saving? Stop with your delay ...I have searched, purified and prepared, just love me for all my foolishness. When does this prince arrive? Who lied to me? Have I waited, and endured, wept, learned and believed ...for you to be a ghost? Save my heart. Catch me for I feel faint. The kingdom has been placed under a spell of darkness. Oh, Please just turn on my light.
