the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 82
a shoulder, an ear, a wish, a prayer

  A shoulder, an ear, a wish, a prayer

I’m longing to run away

To find some safe place

To find someone else hiding

And drape a cloth over my face

No one can understand me

No one can take my hand

And know how I feel

No one will understand

Sometimes it's nice to pretend

To wish it was never there

That all my faults and failures

I wish I did not have to care

Life doesn't wait for people who are sad

Time runs as fast as the clock on your wall

And although everyone tells me it fades

Time only made my sorrow worse

I can’t believe the people

That tell me it’s ok

Sometimes it hurts too much

The price I have to pay

Failure finds me faltering

Each time I pen it down

And now I have no hope

By despair I have been bound

I know you feel so hopeless

I know I don’t understand

But I know also that everyone has sorrows

Only they can comprehend

But I can lend you a shoulder

Or sometimes only an ear

Sometimes a well wish

And a silent prayer
