He still hears her voice like sweet melodies on a lake
Her name comes up, and he realizes
He never stopped loving her, he just took a break
He pauses, thinks then fantasizes

Her love pierced like an arrow,
Love so brash, he craved some intimacy
You see he was far too deep , but her love was shallow
Painfully amazing how he was stuck in a fallacy

Call him a prisoner of her love
How did she capture him to not call her bluff ?
It’s hard to comprehend; hard to solve
But he’d always say, “she had me in her cuff
I breathe and let go today
Tomorrow I’m still stuck like yesterday”

I'm a prisoner of my own making sat on my bed looking around at the four surrounding
walls
for It's there that I live and done so for the last ten
years and I'm a prisoner of my own making for the wrong choices made to early In
life not taking opportunities when they were presented to
me through lack
of
confidence
fate playing a big part In my failings In life
So I'm a prisoner of my own choosing possibly?
Sometimes I think I'm a prisoner of my own making
He was an ocean of darkness.
And within that ocean were few,
very few,
Specks of light.

Where are you going
Where are you going, o madman!
Everything is here sweetheart,
Catch me if u can.
You have bewitched me with your black art.

You have committed a beautiful crime,
Stole my heart and my dreams,
I gave you all my precious time.
My love for you is  extreme.

Where are you going, o crazy man!
Everything is here sweetheart,
Our love was began in the season of rain,
This is where we start.

You are in love with my mask more than me,
By embellishing a beautiful smile.
I’ve pulled a curtain over my secret, you see,
I have a disguise which is very versatile.


Where are you going, o madman!
Everything is here sweetheart,
Catch me if u can.
You have bewitched me with your black art.

You become a flame,
Let me burn and make me ablaze,
I am an extinguished fire, so don’t blame.
You’ll achieve only smoke, not my sign or my name.

Where are you going, o crazy man!
Everything is here sweetheart,
Our love was began in the season of rain.
This is where we start.

You become my prisoner,
Come to the lock up,
Let me be your jailer,
Get ready and stand up.

Fragments, the stone remembers
The walls echo the tale
Moments, life in reflections
Memory tickles the brain

Jail, like death forever
Prisoner becomes the *****
Life, journey to surrender
End is the game

================================================
Confined.
D-Class Cells.
Keeping us locked away.
================================================
Keeping you safe.
Keeping them safe.
Keeping those contained.
================================================
Noise­s.
Just noises.
Sirens.
Screams of our friends.
================================================
Nothing­.
Just protocol.
Warnings.
They are criminals.
================================================
Unrea­l.
The unreal ones are the criminals.
I’ve seen them.
================================================
Crazy.
Inc­ompetent.
Reason for your captivity.
================================================
Trapp­ed.
Confined.
Let me out.
================================================
No Comment.
================================================
I’m boxed in.
Cells, each divided by
A fear which makes them common place.
I want to go home.
================================================
You can’t.
This is required.

This society is killing me
Them and I we speak
Different languages that keep
Me locked inside the cellar of my brain

I try to scream
With my fists I beat
The walls until my knuckles bleed
But no one hears as I go insane

These earthquakes yield fires
Whose smoke chokes me while
The flames chase me to a cliff
And I must make the choice:
To burn to ashes or to end it

These words I sprawl on paper are written in invisible ink
There is no escape
From this massive snake
That coils around my spirit

These chains bind my body to artificial walls
I seem no more than a doll
Devoid of true thought
Unable to reach anything I've ever sought

This society is killing me
I cannot even speak-
The language of my heart is foreign to all but me
And we all know solitude does horrific things when one is truly lonely
I've created my own monster
                  I've built my own labyrinth
                               Believe me
                             It's not funny

                 I thought you're a sunshine
                       You're no sunshine
                      Your rays are strong
                             It burns me

                      How could I escape
                  From this place i've made
                I'm supposed to be the king
                       Ruler of everything

                      Now I am a prisoner
                  Of this freaking monster
                    I thought we're friends
                         I just thought so

                             Oh monster
                         Please let me go
                    We're strangers before
             Can we go back to that scenario?
