I stand below a street light
Exceedingly terrified of darkness
I shiver in the cold of night
As I look for a way out of this wilderness.
Just yesterday we were happily ‘married’
But now it seems the devil put us asunder
There’s much pain, not just from my face that’s marred,
My heart is broken, to heal I’ll need a wonder.
I’ve heard there’s a God who mends the broken
I have a major wound that’s bleeding
I try to say a prayer hoping He’ll listen
In the meantime, I can’t stop myself from crying
I’ve heard it many times alright
That it’s wrong to live with my boyfriend
But love drove me crazy- I couldn’t wait
Besides, it seemed okay, it’s the trend.
Why would he even kick me out!
What happened to the promises we made?
There’s so much pain, I wish I could shout
I feel like the world’s staring, this is bad.
There is no condemnation…
I feel condemned
This is my confession
I know I’ve sinned.
Fish me out of this depression
Use whatever way dear Jesus
I’m in a desert of suppression
Save me from myself.
