it hurts...

sometimes it's just easier to close my eyes
to shut my heart
to ignore the reality of it all

the pain surges deeper and deeper
there seems to be no way to stop it
no cure no remedy

i want to run away but something keeps me here
i don't know what much i can do
but my heart leads me on

...until the last lock breaks

this resonates with me tonight...but yet I feel that changes NEED to happen, but how?

how...that constantly haunts me. the how is the hard part. but every step we take helps. every prayer, every smile, every conversation...
