Trapped in a world that knows only pain.
Nothing to lose; nothing to gain.

Why can’t I find you when I most need you?
I don’t know how much more I can go through.

I need to feel you near me always,
Through all my nights and all my days.

I call out for help; but no one hears.
When can I escape this world and stop my tears?

(written before 1995)
