Never Before

I’ve never before been to a place like this.
A place of darkness, yet filled with light.
Totally consumed, everything else is missed.
How can this feel so wrong yet feel so right?
One day at a time,
small steps along the way.
Why am I feeling I’ve committed a crime,
god, everything would be easier if I just ran away.
No easy solution,
When you are part of the problem,
Is my soul needing ablution?
Really? When it’s just starting to blossom?
Is it going to take direction?
Or is just going to remain?
Does my heart need protection?
I’m not sure if I am able to abstain.
Never before have I felt like this.
Never before have I thought like this.
I have to go out in the dark of night,
to fill my head with clarity of light,
but my search fails me because I cannot see,
Oh help me, someone, I’m lost at sea.
Everything takes place so late,
my poor head is in such a state,
I have to pinch myself to find my real,
Please, your honour, I’d like to appeal!
It has been stolen and placed,
and no more is it here, based.
Never before have I not felt home,
Never before and maybe never again…

Never Before
