You are my nightmare, my stiff anchoring leash; the thing which remains after the dreams all fade

 

No matter how far I go, I can still feel you there

Choking me, dragging me, back to us

 

The one place to which I shall never return

 

Running away has become my mission; your shadow, it darkens the scope of my vision

No matter how brightly the sun deigns to shine, it still cannot burn your cold face from my mind

One day you’ll be back, I remember, you swore

 

So smugly you smiled as I crashed through the door

 

I broke from that cage, from your timeless rage

 

I tore out our chapter, down to the last page

 

You are my shame, my stigma, my pain

 

You are my nightmare, my long lasting chain
