Surrender

I feel an itch
My hands won’t scratch
A burn, unhealed
On my sore back

I yearn for love
I yearn for lust
I receive instead, only the one
Lent my body, let them reside,
for reasons far and needs as wide

I feel a shift
My voice won’t lift
Last word, unheard,
Bring peace instead

I care for him
I cared for them
I cared for each that I took in
Opened my heart, let them reside,
for reasons far and needs as wide

There’s just one left
I’ve ditched the rest
Big spark, left a mark
I can’t forget

I said goodbye
I said sorry
I said what do you want from me
I’ll close my heart, he’ll still reside,
for reasons far and needs as wide.
