Shattered

Written---now

Shattered
by R.A. Slater

Once again
Caught unawares
Shattered

Broken
In shards
Scattered

Told to go away
To stay away
Given no choice

How much more
Why does it have to hurt
Where can I hide

No one to hold me
To stop the bleeding
Dry my tears

Jesus
I cry out to You
Needing You

Pain too great
Aching
Black hole

Silence
I wait for You
Waiting
