Picture To Hold

I have her picture to
hold since I can't
hold her tight.

I look at her picture
in my hand and I
try to believe
everything is

My heart is filled
with sorrow,
the pain I can not

It makes me want
to tear it out and
throw it every where.

Inside in my head I'm
losing it every single
day, I wish I could
just end it all for the
pain to go away.
