Depths Of A Hurting Soul

Only that my tears dried

On the course of my crossed tide

Lost and tied

Across these depths

Of a hurting soul

Regrets and days so tall

Hard when heartbreak falls


Only that love died

In my arms

Though I thought I tried

To break my hurt

From the passion

That broke my heart


Where these waters of bitterness wash me

A pain heavy

The struggle to outdo sadness hefty

The price paid plainly

By thirsty thrusts

Hasty to commit

To a feeling that barely bit


Now that life never kisses twice

The soil I throw in your grave bites

Harder, than an ant fights

Only that you will never be here

To love me again like you did,

When you were near


Only that you have died with me

Gone, with all the love I knew

All I had now screwed

 I will stand at the crossroads stern

Waiting for my turn

And come to be with you

When my time is done
