A Cry For Love

by Darcell Dann

How often I say "you light up my life"
How often I say "you're the apple of my eye"
But when my heart calls your name, a response you give not.
Why does love produce so much pain?
It haunts my mind and consumes my heart.

"Kiss me" I say, "hold me" I plead,
Commit to me, that's all I want.
Allow your emotions to entwine with mine
While our bodies fulfill our needs,
But much to my dismay, you express not love nor intimacy.

"How long can we continue?" my mind questions my heart.
For love him you will always, need him you will not.
I'm on my last cry for help, the things I desire a few.
I control my body with the strength of my mind,
I control my heart with the thought of you.

"Soon" my mind says, "your heart will give up".
My body will require what has been deprived,
And no longer will you be the light of my life or the apple of my eye.
