I am a strong womanĒ Is what Iíve always dreamed of believing, But the reflection looking back at me Isnít the truth. So deceiving.
All I see is a tear stained face. Trying to make you love me, But I fall so far from grace, You glaring above me. Hateful words burying me. Smothering me. Keeping me rooted In this false image of myself. Youíre supposed to love me to life, But youíre loving me to death. Or is it love.
Thatís the shameful reality. A prisoner of my mind. Bound by my insecurities. ...
Locks beautiful and flowing, Like the river Nile. You got me caught up In your current. Ooh your smile, Your aura, Overtaking my senses. So relentless. Iím powerless To stop this. Youíve taken my heart captive, But I donít wanna be free. Loves willful prisoner. Thatís me.
