Life with you…
A butterfly kept prisoner in a golden cage.
Every act, every impression…
A superficial stage.
Love with you…
A locket and chains.
Endless manipulations and mind games.
Your home was a jail cell and your heart a graveyard.
My body remembers the pain and my mind kept on constant guard.
Yet you had no regard.
You may have raised me but I am no keeper of your legacy.
There was spite and hate in the shadows of your contempt and jealousy.
Love showed me another way.
Love gave me reason to keep going, day after day.
Shine a light on the truth, let me fly free.
