I Don't Want To Be Like This

I don't want to be like this,
To live under Death's sour, evil kiss.
To be trapped as though inside a hole,
Fully under your control.

I don't want to be like this,
To think of happiness I'll miss.
To look back on my life, so free,
Until you said you wanted me.

I don't want to be like this,
Knowing only bitterness exists,
To know my life has slipped away,
That I am now your toy, your prey.

And I don't want to be like this,
So I will cry, and reminisce,
I can never free your clutch,
I cannot escape your touch.
