Although many care, no one knows my heart.
I am lost in a world without trusted confidants.
Only I can heal my wounds and manage my deep scars.
So I take silent refuge alone here in the dark.
I turn my hot tears into drops of crystal ice.
Take deep breaths to calm the storm inside.
Ignore my constant pain and push it far away.
So I can simply focus on the tasks of today.
Imprisoned I am within my circumstance.
Forced to turn away from the dreams I once had.
Every step I take is slowed by ball and chain.
So I stay here broken in hopeless solitary.
Sometimes I wander within these prison walls.
Checking every door to see if one's unlocked.
Excited I pass through onto the other side.
Yet bigger stronger bars is all I ever find.
I peer past these barriers into the world around
I see a place I can not reach, a freedom left unfound
To soothe my longing heart I watch the drifting clouds.
Wishing I could follow them into oblivion.
