Introspection short poem

Why do I feel this searing pain
That seems my very heat inflames
And in the depths of silence hush
It feels my soul with weight is crushed
Yes, my mind does wonder far
And seems my sanity does mar
I sink down low unto my knees
And pray the Gods do hear my pleas
A silent tear rolls down my cheek
My throat is choked, I cannot speak
Yet inwardly there is a light
That urges to CONTINUE fight
When will love to me be shown
Why must I live a life alone?
Can the path of fate be changed
Or will my mind become deranged?
What can I do, what must I be
To change the course of destiny?
Yes, I know, I want the chance
To laugh and smile and sing and dance
To wake with just a simple smile
And see his face for just a while
To take his hand and hold it tight
And know that fate says it is right
To give a love that’s so profuse
And become to him eternal muse’.

I do not know what to regret anymore… that I cannot reach you through our memories, that an insane song cannot touch your soul, or that you reversed yourself on the other side of Life?!… I watched how spring drained
