The Old Me

Photo by Lily Lvnatikk on Unsplash

You see all that is within me

Know all that I could ever be

Fighting, struggling, wanting to be free

From the cage locked deep inside of me

I cry no tears even though your pain is tormenting

And for as long as I can remember, for as long as I have felt my own heartbeat

You have been there, torturing everlasting

Taking away what I want, destroying my needs

Controlling my dreams, striving to be led

But I like Red and you like Aquamarine

We’re too different, it seems, for both of us to be free

It’s either you or me

I must depart from you and say GOODBYE to the old me.
