A Scared Prayer

When things don’t seem wrong
Which in the past ripped your heart
When emotion that scared you
Now drives you

There is a moment when you think this is it
I should stop, raise my hands and pray
But my hands feel heavy
My heart feels numb

The words of prayer is impossible to say.
The fact that they might leave my lips
And never return

Forget who I am and why I needed it so much
That after they have left
I’ll have nothing but empty words
A scared heart and a lonely soul
