Lock Me Away

December 13, 2008
By Celeste Gonzalez, Jupiter, FL

Lock me up and throw away the key
So no one else can see,
My eyes ablaze, my words insane,
The crazy side of me.

Lock me up no place near
So no one else can hear,
My screams of pain, my words insane,
Of a heart once so dear.

I look through the bars,
My words insane, my eyes afar,
Locked up with a broken heart,
Then there you are, glowing like star.

You turned to me
Eyes ablaze, words insane,
Of a heart so dear,

"Lock me away and turn on your heel,
So you never have to feel,
The pain I've given you, my broken heart and regret,
These words, don't you ever forget."

I shake my head,
And study his face,
I open the door to drag him in,

Lock us up and throw away the key,
So we never have to be
away from each other, our healed hearts beat as one,
Toghether its to be, together you see
