"You only gave me the power to reclaim every part of me I gave to you."


Chained, grounded, unable to move,
Sick of this life,
Sick of hearing criticism,
Reverberating in my head are excruciating verses,
Never speaking back, but secretly wishing I could fly away,
Fly far away into some distant time,
Crawled up against the wall, Holding on to my sanity,
Listening to Carrie singing, Holding onto her voice,
Never speaking back, but secretly wishing I could fly away,
Locking myself inside my room for sanctuary,
Finding solitude in being alone,
Resisting the urge to not force my feelings onto you,
Not wanting you to feel my pain, My anguish, my hurt,
Never speaking back, but secretly Wishing I could fly away,
Wanting to leave so badly, never wanting to deal with this again,
Can’t wait for the day I finally am able to fly away, fly away,
Clinging onto the hope as if it were my lifeline,
Sadly enough, I am stuck here,
Chained, grounded, unable to move,
Never speaking back, but secretly wishing I could fly away,
Fly away.
