Trapped

Every morning I wake up to a new day
Stuck...
In between the four wall of a cage
The lock and key
drowned in the deepest depths of the earth
fighting against all my emotion tips and turns

Everyday, the day gets closer
the day I'm supposed to dread...
The one where the astral plane will take me
into the hands of the gods that saved me

How do I feel?
Elated, exusted, unsure
I can't simply sit around like a complete bore

I scream...
The sound resonates through the shadows
Taunting me...

Focus...
The sweet melody

I give up
I sit and think
All the things unsaid
All the tears that have been shed

And with each fallen tear
comes a price to pay
A price that only me, myself can take back someday

My pride
My smiles
...
Dignity

So i sit back
And i wait...

No more taunting
No more screaming
Just my sweet melody
My beautiful symphony
