A beautiful heart trapped in a misinformed mind,

living a life of confusion.

Told from an early age, he doesn’t care,

it’s only you and me.

When his actions failed to match the teachings,

chaos would erupt as the saddened parent wept.

“You don’t love me,”  “I’m the one who really cares,”

guilt brought her back to the land of crazy.

She reaches out wanting to have more from him who she loves,

each time, reeled back to the sanctuary of pity.

One day the captors chains will be broken,

the prisoner we see who shut her down.

A day of reckoning and honesty,

no manipulation will overcome.

    There is such honesty, such vulnerability, in this writing. Very powerful.
