I'M Here To Give

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's raining on the inside of my heart.
Too long it has had periods of starting,
Without a stop.

I'm in a struggle to love.
Don't know why I've gotten like that.
I'd rather sit feeling trapped,
Than to be dropped...
Tapped and drained of it again.

I'm in a struggle to love.
And sometimes I want it back!
But the last time I gave in...
In my face I was slapped.

It's raining on the inside of my heart.
Too long it has had periods of starting,
Without a stop.
I've gotten so weak,
I can not sleep!
And I don't need to give love up...
To recieve another heart attack!

I'm in a struggle to love.
And sometimes I want it back!
But the last time I gave in...
In my face I was slapped.

I'm in a struggle to love.
Don't know why I've gotten like that.
I'd rather sit feeling trapped,
Than to be dropped...
Tapped and drained of it again.
To feel that pain like I did back then.

I'm in a struggle to love.
And sometimes I want it back!
But the last time I gave in...
In my face I was slapped.

It's raining on the inside of my heart.
Too long it has had periods of starting,
Without a stop.
It's the fear of letting go.
I want my need of it to show!
But who will know I'm here to give?
