A Prisoner Of Living Free

There is so much to be felt
to understand the point of no return
When you befriend heartache,
it's best to remain civil, and stay clear from it

You recognize intentions
with a string of separation, lagging behind thoughts.

Never knowing what to expect, i steer clear
I move on, and stay clear from your path of destruction.
From your inviting thoughts, only to pull me under your skin

When i opened myself
Poor perception of your own
placed me in a piece of your reflection
While you told yourself, this is who you are.

Yet, you deceived me. And became who you hated most.
You let go of yourself, and gave your heart away to an empty soul
You sold your soul to the mirror, who deceived you for what you really are

And i look ahead into the distance
Numbed from all the truth.
Lies have swallowed up my past.

I cannot be a prisoner of living free.
Although, my mind is set beyond what you have seen
I cannot be held of captivity for witnessing what others remain unseen.

I will not be a prisoner,
all i can imagine is to be set free
