Set Me Free

Walls of fear
shackles of doubt
trap me
in this loveless prison
whose gates
were opened by Betrayal
urging me to step out
and reclaim my life
showed me the way
out of this neglected garden
that blooms no more
Weeds of distrust
have choked its soul
leaving it barren
Freedom is within reach
But not the courage
to break free
from invisible bonds
that keep me
tied to you
I’m not brave enough
to leap without a parachute
so do me one last favour
give me a push
or here I will stay
and die a little each day
