Broken Cage

lightning at sea - by Bill Collison flickr

Dark clouds rolling across the sky
Reflecting all that’s in her eye
Lightning that strikes is all her rage
That she keeps locked within a cage
But that cage is about to break
Leaving destruction in its wake
And all of her rage will flow free
But only sorrow will you see


Fear

Give her a reason to forget the past
And make her believe that something can last
Tell her why she should let go of the fear
And let her know that she’d cried her last tear

She suffers in memories of the pain
Knowing only the tears that fall like rain
Still feeling each blow that took her belief
And left her lying shattered in the grief

She tries to get up but she’s pulled back in
Crushing her hope that she can ever win
So give her reason to believe this time
That she’ll be safe when from this hole she climbs


Without Fear

She no longer fears the darkness
She embraces all the madness
And within her heart the pain will fade
As this heart of stone is slowly made
Falling over the edge of sane
Letting go of the broken chain
No longer tethered to a world so cold
She is finally free of its icy hold


A Thousand Times

She walks through life pretending it’s not real
Shutting down her heart so that she won’t feel
But broken pieces will try to mend
Though they will always fail in the end
For they’ve been broken a thousand times
Their jagged edges all that defines
The path of her life and what remains
A future that’s bleak and bound in chains


Beast Within

There’s a monster she hides deep within
It holds the pain of all that has been
But it begs to be set free
For the world to finally see
With teeth and claws it rips and shreds
And it brings to light all she dreads
The beast within her is now awake
The peace it gave her it now will take


Judge and Jury

You are my judge, you are my jury
You condemn my life without worry
But when you look in the mirror, what do you see?
How can you think you are so much better than me?
I make no excuses for the things I do
I am who I am, I am better than you
Because I won’t judge the life that you lead
We are all human and we all will bleed


Solitude

Alone and cold, lying on the floor
She no longer sees an open door
The silence hangs all around
As she lies there on the ground
But darkness holds no fear in this place
And this solitude she will embrace
