Wonder Why We Wander

it's true, I say

that the pain stays inside

that we don't know where to hide

but why? you ask

because we're broken

because we're lost

because we are alone

you don't need to be, you whisper softly

I am here

I am whole

I am yours

please stay.

those are the words that come out of your mouth

those words.

those are the words to which I wish I could comply

but I cannot 

I cannot stay

I need to go 

I need to be free

maybe you don't understand

but one day you will
