Anticipating Cerebral Peace

Small steps toward a brighter future
My legs bound by your tongue
Rub together
Like we used to

A large leap to the safe ground below
My eyes shut by your breath
Cry violently
Like they used to

Trembling hands
On the throat of a lion
Always pause

The last to leave 
A building burned
Fulfills only the relieved few
While others wait for their happiness
Unrewarded

Why must we waltz around the flames?
Why must I congratulate my failure?
I must move on
But my legs are bound together
