The Power You Hold

Do you know the power
That you frighteningly posses
You have my heart in your hands
And with it I know you'll mess

Warming on the outside
Yet chilling to the core
Loving me in public
But with others you do more

Do you hear the pounding
that is caused from within
Do you hear the pounding
caused by your unworthy sin

I don't deserve these troubles
I don't deserve this mess
I deserve more
But yet, you give me less

Hi,

This was simply amazing. Some of these words hit so close to home.

 I don't deserve this mess, I deserve more. Gorgeous two lines.
