Can these bones live without a shred of dignified belief? Can I thrive on my own promises?

I've been known for fighting what I cannot see. I've been lost more times than I can count/admit to anyone.

Can I get by on what my mind calls comfortable? Can I find a way to keep you near the closing fray?

I've been known for pushing until my spine gives. I've been caught running from your ghost. All my life, I've been looking

When my gut breaks the tie between my head and my heart and I'm alone, where will I stand? Will I still stand up on my own? At my best, I'm a stagnant, tired mess, calling out in alarm. Will you be around when I'm not around, or am I on my own?

Must I acknowledge the countless steps you've taken to claim my all? Will today prove too much if I keep my arms crossed?

I've been known for trying to hold you off. I've been stuck with my stubborn stock. You alone know.

I can't stay out of fear. I won't believe on sensation. Until devotion meets emotion and I find a reason for this, I can't follow through.
