A Heart In A Trap

The words trapped in my heart,
Not knowing how to speak,
Of the world falling apart in my mind,

How could I be fooled,
How could I let lies by,
Why have I fought so much, so hard,
For the deceiver?

Why have I risked it,
Without valuing my worth,
The bitterness in my aching heart,

O Lord, have mercy upon me,
I pray and weep,
For this innocent soul to keep,
If not meant to be,
O Lord, may my soul be taken too.
