Spent months building a wall of trust
Only to have seconds of suspicion tear it down
A figment of my imagination
Perhaps I was just delusional
Addicted to what I thought we had

Kisses once so sweet
now laced with poisons
I can still taste
While thorns buried beneath false promises
Pierce holes
In my tormented soul

There's no room in my realm for fair-weather friends
And their conditional love
Either you love me or you hate me
There is no in between
Take me as I am
Cause this is who I am

I remember the day we began
As well as the night you chose to end
What you claimed was so special
Unfortunately now we'll never be friends
Your true colors you showed
In various shades of green

I can forgive
But never will I forget
The deceitful seeds you spread
You've made your bed
So sleep well
I will.

Free *Bouncing off Of Alicia Keys' Caged Bird*

I've made so many promises

and lost so much time

everyday is a constant struggle

and I'm tired of the hustle

don't know how much longer I can last 

stifled in the present while my dreams are fading fast

cause now I know why the caged bird sings

freedom and redemption songs

it's her only solitude

trying to survive a future so cold & dark

so I carry my dreams like she carries her song

snuggled deep inside my heart

praying for God to release me

from those who hold the key

so the world can finally

spread my wings and fly

soaring high through heavenly skies

creating my own destiny.
