You make me lock my door.
Congratulations, you did it again.
Shut inside wishing for someone to adore
me. Is it a sin?
You make the devil look like my best friend.
Anyone but you
will do.
You're helpless all right.
That makes you wanna fight.

I wanna hide,
Locked away like a princess bride.
I cry.
There's no one to save me.
No one to set me free.
Oh please, oh please-
Don't you see
What you do to me?

I wanna be as far from you as I can
You make me sick
But, hey, thanks
You give me inspiration
No need for contemplation
One look at you
Will truly do

I wanna hide
Locked away like princess bride.
I cry.
There's no one to save me,
No one to set me free.
Oh please, oh please-
Don't you see
What you do to me?

When I'm upset, like everyone, I vent. The difference is I write, not fight.

Oh, I like it. Definitely not as dark as I expected from the title, but amazing nonetheless. I must admit that I adore the rythm and the repeating stanza.

Surprisingly , I love it. The title is intimidating , but it was easy to get over that. I like how this poem is about venting out your feelings. I think it's a very relatable piece and I wish you had more comments on it. It's not as intense as the title suggests , I actually kinda liked reading it.
