i’m in handcuffs, tied to you

my heart entombed, you see.

i’m locked under souls and fear

and trapped by being free.

i can’t see clearly anymore,

or just let myself be

because i’m drowning in a lake,

when i expected a roaring sea.

i’m sick of pretending i’m okay

getting sucked into your gravity:

i just want you to let me go

 

…but i’m the one holding the key.
