“Small Prayer” by Cortney Joseph

I sat up for hours, watching the sky

convincing myself that I had no reason to cry

didn’t need a goodbye

feeding myself the lies, “I’m fine”

I’m fine

 

When inside I’m dying

searching for new ways to cope and get by

new ways to brush these feelings aside

to disguise the pain I feel when I’m lonely at night

nothing about this situation seems right

 

Please show me a sign

help me make it through, guide,

give me strength to live another day of this life

I’m tired of the strife

rid me of and fill this void from not having you by my side
