Personal Psalm of Lament

As I reflect on the burden being single is, I came up with what in structure is considered to be Psalm of Lament. A Psalm, by definition is considered to be a sacred song or hymn or poem, and is used in Christian and Jewish worship. Thus, what I express is a poem who portrays my pain, my questioning, my request and ends with worship.    All merciful and all caring God, How long will my soul remain unloved?
