Shackled by who you are

Poetry By: deanfraserphillips

For those who think that their partners can just be hurt and abused.

Distant lands divided us

We were separated only by the sea

Then I felt the harsh winds from your soul

Eternal cruelty

You said the ultimate two words in life

Two words forever true

Yet the knife you held behind your back

You slashed and stabbed right through

Playing just a wicked game

Right from the very start

A juvenile masquerade

Lies pouring from your heart

But you never penetrated deep enough

My heart it still beats in song

Life for you is shackled by pressure

Mine will move along

Handcuffed to the way you are

Never amounting to be free

Whilst we phoenix rise from the flames

For all eternity

As I soar once more from Ashes

I shake off all the debris

Your life will be like the stagnant rock

Whilst I'm eternally free
