The Prisoner

A silent prisoner
in my mind.
A weakened soldier,
last of my kind.

A silent songstress
in the dark.
A lovely mistress
with a broken heart.

But as I
fall away from the dream
suddenly I
break the world from its seams.

A lovely victim
in the night.
A man overlooken
fighting his own fight.

A heartbroken wife
life taken away.
A child in strife
he's going insane.

And as I
learn to love what I've become
suddenly I
Meet my demons and start to run.

I am
a silent prisoner
in my mind.
I am
a weakened soldier
the last of my kind.

I am
a singing songstress
in the dark.
I am
a lovely mistress
with a broken heart.

As I
learn to love myself again
I
fall away and die again.
