Please, please set me free…
These chains that are constantly tugging me back and forth, back and forth… I’m afraid they’re beginning to rust. The once cold and level sensation of the metal no longer glides against my wrists; now, a feeling of unbearable and immeasurable pain takes its place. It digs into my skin and leaves tiny fragments of metal as I beg for mercy.
Stop taking me back… Stop taking me back!
It’s a silent prayer, a constant reminder that my cries are echoing in an empty room. No one can hear me. I’m drowning on my own, and all I want is to be set free. I never figure out why it happens.
I just can’t seem to stop.
I’m the girl who can’t seem to escape your deathly grasp as much as she tries. I’m the girl who hangs onto your every word, looking for a clue to the maze that is your heart. I’m the girl that just can’t let go.
It’s me! It’s always been me… However, I’m afraid it’s never really been me at all, has it?
Too blinded by your love for her, you don’t see what’s right in front of you… Right here. Waiting here, with arms wide open and fragile, is I; the one that’s truly loved you all along. Your girlfriend is vicious- a manipulative virus in the system of life, playing with the information in your head. Impossible to be rid of, you’ve succumbed to the influence of her cunning methods. You’re numb to the pain, grinning and bearing it for the sake of your love. She doesn’t deserve you, has never deserved you…
Every day I wonder if I can be that for you, the special someone you’re destined for. I am the one you deserve.
To be set free from the restraints of my unrequited love is an intoxicating feeling I relish in. This is what powers me to try harder, to break the chains and continue on the path of my life. Just when I feel as though I’ve gotten a hold of myself, I see your beautiful smile and my illusion shatters like glass at my feet. I can’t help but to be pulled forward, my infatuation piercing me with every step I take. I know it’s not his fault, but I always find myself blaming him for it. I’m placed back at square one, stuck in this one place forever and always.
I’m sorry I can’t control my feelings.
