Key of gold

I wait in the dark
safe and alone
With chains on my wrist
and a key made of gold

Silver chains stay quiet
as I stay still in the dark
I look down at the key
that is your heart

I escaped my chains once
It didn't go well
The boy broke my heart
and into the dark i fell

Do I dare leave
and risk all of the pain?
They say love is a gift
or maybe a curse
from my experience
i say it's much worse

You are different
Your smile full of light
could you be my sunrise
to my endless night?

I hold up my key
to unlock my chains.
What am I doing?
am I going Insane!!!

But I'm tired of the dark
and I'm sick of the cold
I unlock my chains
with my key of gold

The light on my face
The warmth on my skin
Me and you holding hands
let the journey begin

I really loved this poem.  The verses flow nicely and the rhyming is done very well, none of it seems forced at all.  I love the symbolism and imagery, great job :)  Please read some of my work, I'd love to know what you think!  :D  Great job here!

Why do all great things have saddening origins? A great poem none the less. 5 stars.
