Some Place I Never Want To Be


Here,
Right now,
Alone, without you.
This is someplace I never want to be.
Emptied,
Poured out like water,
A broken vessel,
This is someplace I never want to be.
Lost,
Blinded,
I cannot see
And this is someplace I never want to be.
Longing,
Parched and dry,
Thirsting for your waters
This is somplace I never want to be.
Broken, busted apart
Useless without you,
You complete me
And this is somplace I never want to be.
Saddened,
Drowning
Without doubt
This is someplace I never want to be.
This is someplace I never want to be.

    Sometimes we have to go to places we never want to be in. You have beautifully described the feelings of your heart, being in a place you never wanted to be in.
