Locked Away Tight

Over and over she falls in dismay

The smell of failure, sweet like an ash tray

There's always the ones willing to help her

Her twisting words act well to deter

Foolish she is for being ignorant to them

And yet they believe she will grow like a roses stem

But like the stem she has a barrier of thorn

Stubborn she reject them, bitterly torn

At the end of the day,

she likes to have it her own way

Making it harder and harder for herself

she locks herself away in a tight box on a shelf

Scared of being hurt she refuse to trust

Eroding me away like sea water rust
