Image for the poem Breathe

Breathe

Youíve kept me sheltered and winged
A bubble of your psyche
A curtained existence well stringed
Disciplined under lock and key
B
Youíve kept me silent and dumb
Ignorant of your practice
Diluted dreams sewed us as one
Emotional warfare was your tactics
R
Youíve kept the sight from my eyes
Perfect vision misguided
Blind to obvious lies
Your life was always two-sided
E
Youíve alienated my friends
And kept my family away
Stalked my life to no end
A vicious cycle of prey
A
Youíve abused me with your rage
Broke my spirit and bones
Doors and windows bar my cage
Safety returns when Iím alone
T
Youíve made me lie awake at night
Waiting for your return
Drunken words become a fight
My inner hatred slowly burns
H
Youíve pushed me far enough to break
Iím on a cliff with intent to jump
My love for you was my biggest mistake
How could I have not foreseen this slump
E
