The Question of You
I've been praying for the answer to the question of you.
I've been grasping for my sanity.
I know not where I'll see you again
Or what it will do to me.

I've been looking for a way to get you off my mind.
I've been watching myself burn.
I'm waiting for some explosion to set you free;
To watch you fly. Live and learn.

Leave me alone. You are killing my soul.
You leave me empty again and again.
There's nothing I can do to get you out of my life.
But I'll never let you in.

More incredible phrasing. You are so good at this. "I've been grasping for my sanity." How absolutely right that statement is. And I love, "I've been watching myself burn" and "Leave me alone. You are killing my soul." Good work, Dori. ML
