Stuck In The Shadow of The Earth

I personally feel that this is one of my better writings. I hope you enjoy it! :)

So many times have I felt stuck in the shadow of the earth

A nighttime that never sees the sun since the day of my birth

People places & things pass me by

Time is no longer on my side or an ally

Life circles around me 360 degrees

Feels like I have died 100 deaths from every fatal disease

The opportunity to have love has passed me by forever

My heart is stone & dark, no longer flesh & tender

I wake up everyday only for the sun to never rise

And my appeal to life is gone & gray & no one hears my cries

This life I lead is difficult & hard

But then it all changed one night; I looked up to see the stars

Suddenly the night wasn't so dark & you came along

I saw the sun & heard the chirping from the robins song

I opened my eyes to life anew

And realized the life you wanted me to live through & through

My solitude, my comfort, my peace

My best friend, my lover, my cool breeze

Please come to me & hold me & make my pain cease

Please love me the way you know how & make amounts of stress the least

Please come as close as you can & pull this dagger out of my back

Don't give up on me & help me get back on track

Put my heart back in my chest

Sew the gaping wound & love me like you do best

Love me on this new day like the rising of the sun

Like a baby out of the womb & God blows breath to his lungs

Love me like a mother nurturing a baby in her womb

Love me like a father holds his baby in the delivery room

You are my first love you will also be my last

Holding onto the hope for tomorrow & wishing to relive the past

Cradle me in the face of adversity & push me forward when it's time to go alone

Take my hand & lead me down the right path & teach me how to grow

I have a love that is so concentrated on you & who you are

What you stand for & the emotions that are not far

For they are tangible & they are real

They are alive & they're emotions I can feel

My skin is on fire & my heart is too

When our lips touch I start to see inside of you

My eyes are closed but I still see your love

My arms are around you but I still feel your trust

I engulf you & take you in completely

I don't think you realize how much you complete me

You see I have this love yearning inside of me wanting to get out

To tell you how much I care about you, what I'm all about

But one would ask, why so much energy & effort just for one girl?

Well she's my soulmate, earth, sun, moon & world
