Poetry Friday: Another by Mandalay

If truth could speak
I need another
I swear it's due
I need another

When I get scared
When I recover
I'm sure that there
Can be another

And your life is chained
Close to another
Her shell is deep
In laid with trouble

A life for less
A new removal
You shed your skin
And love another

And your back isn't sore anymore
And your feet touch the ground
As you step from the wall
And you gave all you could

Given all that you saw
But dappled with love
Can you see who you are?

A lot gets said
You lose another
You shed a load
And gain another

You're back in deep
You know it's over
You find yourself
And love another

And your back isn't sore anymore
And your feet touch the ground
As you step from the wall
And you gave all you could

Given all that you saw
But dappled with love
Can you see who you are?
