Save My...



My love. Your eyes shake the sky. Your heart causes the earth to pound...to shake. My love. I need you close. Yes, I need you near. I’m alone and cold in this cell....lord I, shed so many tears. I wish to die. i wish to be ‘‘here’’ no more. I run in my dreams cause I know I’m free. When I’m awake I run from my past. But i smile...cuz life...ain’t so bad. My frustration, My liberation, My core’s shaking, my life been taken by...the...system! I cry out for help..but nobody comes to my aid. I keep faith...lord God please stay...please stay. Away like ashes I go. My love, please save my sad-shattered soul.
