You broke my wings You dragged me down With every word you let me down Nearly touching the ground I knew what I had to do Escape from you Yet I kept listening to your lies Staring death right in the eye You dropped me down a cliff Down in the water I couldn't breathe
Still under deep water I try to find my way out of the dark
On the edge of the cliff I imagine You watched me fall with a smirk I can still see the smile on your face It was my turn to fly But you cut out my wings and threw me down Give me back my freedom I've been drowning for too long, Release me now I would do anything to swim back out
A year ago I found my way back out. Tonight I found this poem and realized how far I have come. You didn't destroy me.
