let me…

as a homeless man clings to his rags,

let me hold my hurt closest,

nearest to my heart,

let me embrace my pain always,

up at my breast,

let me collect the tears i have shed,

the insults they have hurled,

let me grasp at my misery,

the only true measure i take,

against the charms,

the allure of forget,

that enticing release of wrongs past,

allow me but this one failure,

that shields me from others,

so that the puncturing may stop,

the stinging poison of hope,

tonight as every night,

let me elope into the darkness,

leave loneliness be my bride,

let me cradle my anguish,

languish in this emotional squalor,

leave me to my madness,

let me be in my sadness
