Your Mercy

I’ve given you my heart,
You hold my life in you hands.
Controlling it at fancy,
Because I thought you’d understand.

The first person I have known,
Who knows me better than myself.
Knew what I was thinking.
Knew what I felt.

Wooly blanket over my eyes,
I foolishly gave you my soul.
Thinking I had found a true friend.
Believing I was whole.

Now because of blind faith,
And foolish love and trust,
I lay wounded at your mercy.
Jester’s love; this was lust.

My emotions are your actions,
I am bound with your chains.
Started as a search for a friend.
Now my free choice is slain.

The author's comments:
Sometimes we rely on a person too much, are so infatuated that we are blind to the other endless supplies of happiness. If it happens this person does something negative, it is reflected in our own emotions.
