Iím struggling to find the answers to these un-asked questions

To find the next logically piece to the puzzle

I need to find the cure to this unprotected weakness

So I can live my life without this burning guilt

My heart is vulnerable and your hands are wrapped around it tight

Squeezing all the pain and suffering out

And although you left a hole for everything else to slip through

These scars will heal and these open wounds will seal

The empty depths of my soul will fill

The broken parts will fix easily

And the unwanted thoughts will gradually disappear into nothingness

But the constant reminders of abuse in the world

Strikes the nerve endings in my heart

Makes me sick to the bottom of my stomach

Brings tears of helplessness flooding to my eyes

People donít deserve to suffer from this emotional pain

And my weakness is that I care too much

Iím sick of this life and of the people who populate it

So Iím sleepwalking over this bridge into my dreams

Leaving reality behind and all the people who I cared for

I look down and see the burning molten

The heat warms my feet

And my heart races

And the guilt sinks in so I turn around

But I plummet down, falling forever

I lay motionless on the unfamiliar surface

Feeling around for something that feels familiar

But nothing just blackness surrounds me

The fear echoes from the darkened corners

Howling sounds screeching in my ear drums

But I can clearly hear the whispers

Reminded me of my weakness

Itís just a flaw, something I canít correct

I care for you to much

So it leaves my heart vulnerable

So unprotected that once infected

The pain is too hard to overcome

And now that you know

That youíre my weakness
