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

Unrestrained

She won’t be controlled, she won’t be contained
This life that she lives no longer restrained
She stretches her wings, though tender and sore
Slowly lifting them up off of the floor
There’s a new light shining within her eyes
The fear that once ruled here she now defies
Standing up taller with each passing day
She’s now the hunter, no longer the prey


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


Divided

Dreams and hopes that once filled her head
Have been replaced by fear and dread
Though in her heart love still resides
It sits broken by the divides
Bridges have been made in the past
But none still stand and none will last
The divides widen day by day
In the maze she has lost her way


Forsaken

Free her now from this prison within
Release her from the pain that has been
Holding her soul and crushing her heart
Giving her hope to tear it apart
Let her find the solace she needs
That shred of hope for which she pleads
Though she’s broken and her view left jaded
There’s a light within that’s not yet faded
Give her a chance to rekindle the fire
So that upon those flames she can fly higher
As they consume the past and the pain
And within their heat melt every chain
Never again will she be taken
To a place where she is forsaken


Days Gone By

She looks at what she’s become
At all she’s built that’s come undone
Memories still linger on
Of the days that are long gone
Of a life that she could not keep
She sees now only in her sleep
But still each day she puts on this show
How broken she is they’ll never know
She’ll smile and pretend everything’s right
But behind closed doors, tears still fall each night


Forgotten

Alone in a crowd she falls to her knees
This crumpled up doll that nobody sees
Her strength is gone and her will is broken
Her words fall unheard as if unspoken
As she falls prey to all the madness
Another victim of the darkness
