All Too Many Years

It's all swirling in my head.
The days are long.
The nights are dead.
I sought this love
for all too many years.

Another dawn.
The hope is gone.
I can't revive
the feelings anymore.
I was betrayed
in all too many ways.

My body aches.
My head keeps spinning.
The shock of loss
holds new beginnings
back behind the borders
that reality has set.

Caught within a net
without a knife.
The freedom of the skies
that once was mine
shows me the lies
that freedom brings.

From understanding
grows the seeds of a great need
that never can be satisfied.
Wisdom does not come with age.
I watch the players on the stage
of life. Pretending that they
haven't felt the strife.

Now it's all swirling in my head.
The days are long.
The nights are dead.
The pleasure and the pain
dissolve in tears that
never seem to have an end.
I opened up.
My utter trust was thrown away.

I sought this love
for all too many years...
