Oh Tortured Soul

oh tortured soul
you have ran around this house of bones
for far too long
let me see the wisdom
you have brought with your age
let me know there is a truth
underneath your dark and beaten face
show this skeleton how to grow wings
please let me know there is still
a heart that beats
underneath this rusty cage
unchoke your twisted fingers
from this throat of mine
promise me there is a gasp
left inside of me
with which to speak my sorrows
unravel this longing inside me
to know a peace so real
a contentment that was robbed
of me in the early days of you
cover these eyes of fear
enough for me to speak and feel
the warm compassion of the heart
i have found myself begging of you
to finally set me free
