Somehow I Carried On
I have felt the hatred in the eyes staring back at me,
I have felt the fear that makes it hard to breathe,
I have taken the blows that "love" delivers,
And somehow I've carried on,
I've felt the severe wrath of my wrongs,
Carried a burden that was too heavy to hold.
I've stumbled farther than I walked,
My heart aches for release now,
My body throbs for love,
What have I done to deserve this?
When will it be my turn to be loved?
Not just desired but truly cherished?
I fear this love I will never know,
Empty minimal apologies--yet--I forgive.
