I'm the one in the cage.
And just like my words I'm confined to this page.
Is anyone out there?
Does anyone care?
Someone please show me a light,
For my days are as dark as the depth of the night.
I am crushed,
Bent down, heart broken,
Can't even lift my eyes up as a token.
All my mirrors are smashed,
My dreams are all gone,
Any visions of you are as far away as the dawn.
I scream.
Crouched low, fists clenched tight,
Breaking the deafening silence of night.
Alone with my self behind bars
Nothing is mine, but minutes and hours.
