Finally found the key to these handcuffs;
they've been holding me back all my life.
Finally I can breathe through this restraint.
My eyes no longer shut
by the tape on my eyes and mouth.
Unable to speak my mind,
no longer able to properly stand.
Everything I ever thought was love
has turned into the hate I now call home.

Your pacing footsteps on the ground
remind me once again of the heartbeat
I have that I wish was gone.
But these restraints still left a mark,
a mark where it hurts the most.
And I can't fully see my mistake,
but only the hurt you caused me.
