If only it came with a disclaimer!

When did it become this hard?

Why was there no one to tell me?

That it is only grand for hours and sucks for days

That it does not guarantee me from the empty feeling?

 

Then maybe I would ran

Ran from the feelings that distress me

Ran from the feelings that craft me in to a feeble and vulnerable shell

Ran and never look back

If only it came with a disclaimer

 

Every morning as I open my eyes and look forward to a new day

Every evening as I look forward to rest my tired body

My prayer is to have the person I love by my side

To comfort me when am down

To understand me when am being illogical

To feel the emptiness in my heart with love

………if it only it came with a proviso

Then maybe I would have ran

 

I bundle and cry myself to sleep

The void in my heart so evident despite being so close

I look forward to the embrace that never is

I look forward to the comfort that rarely is

And I embrace the pain, the self doubt

And I realize I have been swindled

If only it came with a manual

Then all I would do is ran

And never Fall
