Critical Mass

Emotions, so long held within
have reached the point of return
for I can no longer compromise
my spirit for the waste

of love that's given out in faith
while all I'm given back is base
and futile memories
of how you thought it ought to be

Through the years of your denial
I have held it all within
to ease your burden
seeking to transform it all
into the love we need

I've sought so many other outlets
cried so many tears
yet now I see
after all these many years
and in facing all these fears

that the point of love's demise
lies within you
and I will do what I must do
to set love free

for everything I long to be
is love...
