I grew up in an artificial world…

One he created…

But if you never know any differently, then you wouldn’t know that behind the curtains…every detail and plan he dictated.

When I got older…that’s when I started to see…

All the methods and manipulations he operated to keep control of me.

The real world is messy and it doesn’t always turn out the way you predict.

But the one he made…whenever you disagreed it only instigated constant conflict.

His world felt empty….broken….underneath the shining lights.

A part of me used to stare out into the stars and wish upon the moonlight.

Escape to a place far away…

One where I would be loved and peace would find a lasting place.

His world was of entire control and false power.

But in the end…he was the one who was a fearful coward.

The lie I believed for so long…was that his world was “safe.”

After I distanced myself…I learned this was never the case.

But there’s freedom in knowing…

The truth behind what is showing…

No longer living in his world was the greatest gift I discovered.

With love, not fear, my entire world was brought to life by color.
