Not Enough

Burning my dreams of desire

Desire of mine denied

Comfort of safe companionship

Fizzles away in to the night


Dreaming reality asleep

Fairytales awakened and gone

For love I shall not take the leap

Always my bruised heart gets it wrong


I’ve crossed the oceans of courage

Like a bird souring through the sky

I crave what ceases to exist

A love that fly’s a thousand miles


The truth of the matter is

I am not wanted

I am not needed

I am not desired

I am not enough
