This Pain Inside of Me

Mar 17

What is this pain inside of me,
Why do you so persist?
I’ve tried to numb your presence,
I’ve tried to not resist.


What is the pain inside of me,
What is it that you want?
I’ve listened to this heart of mine,
Yet still you cling and haunt.
What is this pain inside of me,
What say you with your voice?
I hear your painful remedy,
Which in – I find my choice.
A choice to stop and listen,
A choice to hear your cry,
A choice to learn a lesson,
A choice to let you die.
I do believe I’ve listened well,
I do believe we’re through,
I thank you for the lessons, pain,
And now bid you adieu!
