Why My Heart Is Crying

Sometimes I feel like no one cares

I’m on my own and no one’s there

I’ll die alone, that’s what I fear

I’m dying slow and I’m aware

I try to cry but can’t find a tear


Sometimes I feel my life is dark

because my past has played a part

And in my self-destructing

I feel like I’m combusting

My inner peace and me are fussing

The outer me was struck by lightning

And that is why my heart is crying
