The Stranger Within Me

Yes, I had smiles false Seemed so true but not Emptiness filled me with so much un satisfaction My sharp cold eyes glittered with dust, As I watch my life, his life rather; For he took it away; The day he thought he gave it to me, Because I never got my wish but he's fish I never lived me but him He had become the murderer of my dreams My soul he gradually killed, like poison slow, As I dumped four years of my life, In the citadel of doom; Where all the loud creativity in me, Crawled to a little spot in my being So I never lived me but him For every breath I took was to please him, And every breath I took was to be Father's image Finally the mussel East wind blew to my direction Blowing off the him from me! As the passion in me flooded It is time for me to live me! A successful failure, I cannot remain As everyone saw the smile; But deep in me were miles from the sight; Because I never lived me but him I was a caged pen, Entangled in his den of success quick Alas! The sunshine of passion called smiles clung to my face tightly As I whispered loudly to him; Here's your fish as I take my wish Tears unending filled my eyes; Not for sorrow but joy's plea For my life I would live not he's anymore.
