You and I;
We were partners, for a period of time
But I was too caught up in your lust
I had not noticed my crimes.

Bound by every lie.
And these chains,
Well I’ve grown accumstomed to;
A prisoner of the mind.

Persecution riddled my past,
Attacked for the size of the shadow I cast.
Twisted with torment,
Surely, the physical caught the worst of it.

I was weak, when you made me strong.
To give up what so many thrive on.
Nobility knocked on my door,
This was what I was designed for.

We could go on like this forever,
‘til the very end;
But for now, to keep the peace,
I shall keep my distance__

I will reach for you again…
