The Wound

At times I'm beaten
At times I'm sad
I keep shining my light out there
Hoping you take it
And make it grow
Because you will know a day
When the only light that guides you is pain

I miss people I've never met
I miss places I've never been
I miss amazing things I've never seen
I wish we could meet each other
Embrace, smile, and laugh

Mourning the stranded path
Sitting bent and broken
Held up only by anger
My middle finger to gravity
While I'm still breathing
The king of an empty empire

I tried to cry but couldn't
My bone dry soul is empty
Tasting electric barbed wire
As I scream at a deaf universe
