the escape

Written by: Ruth Miranda

with my eyes closed I trusted in you...
I left everything behind
like I was blind.

with my eyes closed I loved you...
no matter how long I had to wait
you were my fate.

with my eyes closed I gave you my heart...
my hopes, my secrets-- at night,
I even  gave you my promises---they were bright.

Today, with my eyes closed I turn around 
I go away, avoid, elude, evade, escape...
 I put on... my self-protection cape.
