My heart is not calm.
Beneath the facade is an ache I can't ignore,
pain that swells with each breath.
Hurts that don't go away.
Needs that aren't fulfilled.
Grey clouds cover my soul.
I need, once again, to know beyond a doubt,
and would love to hook my feeling to that knowledge,
that I am loved with
an everlasting love.
This love will last longer than childhood.
